Dimension Permissions

In Feng Office, we call dimensions to every category of information. Clients, Projects, Workspaces, People, Vendors, and Tags are all examples of dimensions.

Super Administrators are the only users that can access any element (dimension member) on any dimension, regardless of the permissions that they have.

Super Administrators can grant permissions to other users on any dimension and any element.

Other type of users that can grant permissions (Regular Administrators, Managers) can only give access to the elements that they can manage, but not to elements out of their management reach.

Limits

Currently, User Type permissions can be override by Super Administrators. In the future, it is planned that User Types will not only set default permissions, but also limits on the access levels of each user type.
