Permissions Table

  1. In the right pane, click the Permissions Table page.
    This reveals the User Permissions for Daily Log table.
    (Note: By default, user permissions are inherited from permission template assigned to the user during account creation. See Manage Permission Templates. You can grant or revoke user access to the tool by continuing with the next step.)
  2. Grant or revoke user access permissions as follows:
    • To grant a user access permission to a tool, place a green checkmark (​check.png) in the Read Only, Standard, or Admin column. The system automatically places a red checkmark (x.png) in the remaining columns. 
    • To revoke a user's access permission to the tool, place a green checkmark (​check.png) in the None column. The system automatically places a red checkmark (x.png) in the remaining columns. 
      (Note: If an options are grayed out, that users permissions cannot be changed at the Project level.)
