Using the Matrix
The Matrix permits to set the expected level of Rights the Group will have on the Folders.
Using the Matrix, click on the cell corresponding to the Group and the Folder you want to change.
A dialogbox will appear in which you can select the type of access rights you want for the Users belonging to this Group on this Folder.
As a consequence, the cell will change color and a specific symbol will indicate the type of allowed rights.
- An open-hand symbol indicates that no access is allowed. In such case, the cell is RED.
- An eye symbol indicates that reading is allowed. In such case, the cell is ORANGE.
- An indentation symbol indicates that writing is allowed.
- A pencil symbol indicates that editing is allowed.
- An eraser symbol indicates that deleting is allowed.
The cell will be GREEN if rights Write/Edit/Delete are allowed.
The cell will be BLUE if one or two of the rights Write/Edit/Delete are allowed.
This matrix is very powerful and visible. As you can see in the previous screen-capture.
Allow access to all Items
This feature is disabled by default and is unsecure but it may be helpful.
It’s aim is to permit the Users of a Group to have the right to edit/modify all Items they have access to. It will bypass the settings set for each Item.
Only activate this for a Group with limited Users.
To activate this, click on the icon as shown in next screen-capture.
