Actually, I was able to figure out a way to make it work without locking the BPOs, since those move to a new structure whenever they’re done being researched. By granting Factory Manager and Rent Research Facility under station services, and by using the Take function and NOT the Query function for that division under the Access settings, the member is able to see all blueprints in that division and run research/invention jobs from the industry screen out of their own wallet. Also, they are not able to see into the corporate hangars so there is no risk of them actually being able to take the BPOs.
Now I just need to figure out how to set the “Based At” feature.
Thanks for your responses, all.
