Note: The assignment of permissions through the User Administration/Group Administration modules can take some time and setup to get all user permissions settings precise. All changes are manual so that permissions are assigned with intention and planning.

Note: All permissions assigned to the User Group in User Administrations are provided full access to pages or modules. If you are wanting to assign category level permissions, so the user(s) in question only have access to specific categories instead of the full module, you need to assign those permissions in the category properties themselves. For more information please view our Category Permissions Guide article.
