Please note that question refers specifically to PE orgs and not those with profile settings (DE/UE/EE etc..). I have been testing with managed beta packages.
I have an app defined that has a set of VF tabs that act as admin pages and standard object tabs. What I want to do is hide these admin tabs and allow an admin user to specify who can have access.
I have created the tabs as hidden and a permission set (tabAdmin) to show them. (This works fine in DE btw.) Upon installing the package in PE tabs are always visible even for users without the permissions sets assigned.
Ultimate goal is to have tabs that can be switched on/off dependent on settings provided by an admin user. Is there a way to do this?
