Permissions originate from the SIS. However, Administrators may want to enhance or restrict a member's permissions - or, create a new permission set altogether.


 

  1. Go to the Dashboard
  2. Search for the member you’re looking for by typing part or all of the person’s first or last name, searching by email address, ID #, or by phone number (no dashes or parentheses)
  3. Click "Info"
  4. Select "Permissions"
