Role Groups Screen

Last Updated: Wed Jul 07 2021

Role Groups are configured in Setup / Users & Accounts / Users / Role Groups


Roles groups define the specific screen permissions that are applicable for specific roles or activities (sales, finance, admins, etc.). One or more role groups are configured on roles to grant the role the permissions it requires (e.g. a role might require both sales and finance role group permissions to perform the role's function).

In the event role groups assigned to a role have opposing settings (one role group grants read rights to a screen and another does not grant read rights to the screen) the role group that enables the permission will take precedence.


Role groups can be setup as needed, there are no prerequisite configuration steps.

Role Groups Panel

The Role Groups panel on the left of this screen allows you to select existing role groups to view and edit on the Edit Role Group panel to the right. Actions are also available in this panel which are shown as icons above the Filter text box. The available actions are described below.
