Hi there: 

A specific person (Ie, Fred in Accounting) or a specific person type (ie, The Employee's Manager, or, HR)

In both situations, you'll use a Validation rule. 

In this rule, you'll tell it under what condition you want to hide the panel. If you click on the panel, click the "hide" checkbox, then add a rule, you can say something like " not(userEquals(variable:Manager))"  - so if the user isn't equal to the variable where you've named the manager, then, hide.

Here's a pretty interesting question from someone else - different requirements but will show the validation ... 

https://community.nintex.com/message/57941-re-nintex-forms-validation-with-userequals?commentID=5794... 

Then there is Sean's way as well, using operators (like == or != ).. so  "Manager != CurrentUser" then hide.

Let me know if this helps.

I am pretty new to this, could you please tell me how to assign a sharepoint group to a variable?  I would like to hide a panel for everyone but this sharepoint group.  Thanks!

Hey ‌ -- in this case I am pretty sure you can just say not(isMemberofGroup("GroupNameHere"))

So for example not(isMemberofGroup("Site Owners"))
