It is recommended to make use of roles. The use of roles makes it easy to give multiple users predefined sets of permissions at once.
To switch to using roles, perform the following steps:
- Define which custom roles fit your organization and then create them via the Roles tab.
- Assign the roles (default and custom) to the users either via the Roles tab per role, or via the Users tab per user.
- Remove the user-specific permissions that are already included in the role for the users you assigned a role via the Users
This step is not required, but it is recommended because it can cause confusion if you don't: a user gets the permissions defined in the role(s) plus the user-specific permissions users, so it is unnecessary to keep the user-specific permissions.
