Edit role permissions and properties

You can change the functionality available to users by changing the permissions associated with a role. Each role has separate permissions for each type of org unit; when you assign a user a role in a specific org unit, they receive the role’s permissions for that type of org unit. Permissions are very granular; they allow you to control what type of functionality a role has access to for each tool in the system.

  1. From the Admin Tools menu, click Roles and Permissions.
  2. Click the role for which you want to edit permissions.
  3. From the Filter by Tool drop-down list, select a tool. Click Apply Filter.
  4. From the Choose Org Unit Types link, select or deselect the check boxes for the org units you want to view. Click Apply Filter.
  5. Make your changes.
  6. Do one of the following:
    • To continue editing permissions for the role, click Save. Repeat the previous steps.
    • To finish editing permissions for the role, click Save and Close.
