Privilege Group Membership 


The Privilege Group Membership section will display the privilege group(s) to which the selected User is assigned.

  • Best Practice: Since managing privileges at the User level is difficult to maintain, it is recommended that privileges be provided through Privilege Groups instead.
  • Best Practice: To avoid privilege conflicts, it is recommended to assign a User to only one Privilege Group

Advanced User Privileges

CAUTION: Managing privileges at the User level is can be difficult to maintain. It is recommended that all privileges be granted through Privilege Groups instead.

Module Privileges 

The “Module Privileges” section, located in the top right section of the page, displays the selected user’s privileges for each module. To view or edit a user’s privileges, select a specific module in the ‘Module Privileges’ drop-down field. Upon selection, all privilege types for the selected module will be displayed. To view a short description of a specific privilege, hover your mouse over the privilege. 

To grant or remove a privilege, select or deselect the check box next to the privilege. Note that privileges in black text give the user permission to perform an action. Privileges in red text (known as “take-away” privileges) restrict or remove the user’s ability to perform an action. Be sure to select SAVE to save any changes. 

Note: Module Privileges that are greyed out are inherited from privilege group membership. If you want to remove one of these privileges, you will have to remove the user from the privilege group that is currently granting them the privilege. For more information on Privilege groups, please see the Privilege Groups page. 

Simple Report Privileges 

The “Simple Report Privileges” section, located at the bottom left section of the page, allows you to you quickly grant or remove report privileges.

Report Privileges

For example, if you want a user to only be able to run reports and access module information for the “Houston” location, you can do that here. 

Note: If the user permission “Use Primary LG for” is selected under the Module Privileges section for a particular module, the locations assigned for a module under this section, Report Privileges, will be overwritten and will not be combined with the user’s assigned primary location group (Exception: Key Info).
