I am getting "Invalid Request" error during zip file upload via module loader
In the majority of cases this means that the file upload size is insufficient. At least 80MB should be allowed in WEB server and SugarCRM configuration in order to upload the module. It is recommended to increase the limit beyond 80MB permanently. (If necessary you should also increase both upload_max_filesize and post_max_size in php.ini configuration, because max allowedupload size is limited by both of these settings). The Web server has to be restarted after changing these settings. PHP INI memory_limit = 256M (at least)
Is it possible for each user to only see their data?
Yes, for this you should select the filter ("Filters" tab) Assigned User or Created by='Current user'.
