Our Group Permissions model has been revised to be more streamlined and better organized. We have introduced the concept of “staff” versus “resident” for all groups; going forward, when creating a new group you will be required to select either the “staff” or “resident” group type. For the staff group type, all permissions are available, while for residents, a limited set of options will be available. Permission options are now neatly categorized making it much easier to make selections within each category. We have removed the global “Can change admin settings” option and replaced it with more detailed and specific permissions.
You can view the new groups configuration page and make changes by clicking your name in the upper-right corner, selecting Setup, then Groups.
Email Preferences have also been reviewed and updated to ensure consistency with group permissions. After yesterday's release, only email preferences related to items you have permission on will be displayed on the email preferences page.
If you have any questions regarding Group Permissions or Email Preferences, feel free to contact our support team at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone, at 416-961-7884, option 2.
