  • Select the Grant button to provide permission to access the selected UDF group.
  • Select View Rights Deny button to prohibit permission to access the selected UDF group.

Click the Save button to save the permission settings. Or, click the Cancel button to discard the data.

Cloning/Copying Field Group System Permissions

Copies of existing permissions can be created using the Save As function in the application. This function permits the user to save the current settings of an individual or group, which, in turn, makes a clone or copy so that a new record can be created from duplicating the current record.

Field Group level permissions are copied with all other permissions. There is no separate ‘Save As’ utility for Field Groups.

To create a copy of a user’s or group’s permissions using the Save As function, follow the steps below.

Go to Admin and locate the user’s or group’s permissions to copy and click the associated link.
