How to create a home page where users only see and edit their document library when accessing site.

I wanted to have a site where users can open the site and within the home page the only thing that they see is the document library relevant to them and their permissions. I want them to be able to read and add to their own document library just from opening the site. Each folder within the document library should have permissions set so that only the state that they are associated with appears within the library. Then folders within those folders have permissions set to decrease as the user proceeds until they reach their personnel files.

For example: If Tom and Jim are from Maryland they only see the Maryland folder within the document library. But on the next folder within maryland they then only see the folder for their city (should Tom be from Columbia and Jim be from waldorf)." What would be the best method to go about making that work?

    A suggestion:

    • Create state groups and city groups and populate as required
    • Manage access of <state> folder and go to the Advanced settings
    • Click Stop Inheriting Permissions
    • Click Grant Permissions
    • Invite the necessary group(s) for that folder
    • Repeat for the city folders
