The Finalsite Guide to Permissions

Permissions is the process of granting an admin user on your team access to edit, make changes, add content, delete, and do many more actions within a certain area of your platform. This article will help you understand how permissions work in the Finalsite platform.

Finalsite's Three-Step Guide to Setting Permissions

In each instance where you are considering what level someone on your team should have, think of this three-step process:
