Standard Space Permission Levels

The application includes several default space permission levels. Designed to meet common permissions needs, these are worth a look if you're starting from scratch (or even revising what you've got). As described below, you can also add your own levels.
Note: To see the list of space levels in the Admin Console, go to the Permissions > Space Permissions Levels and then click the Standard Levels tab.

The following table lists the standard space permission levels, along with a summary of the access granted by each. See the table later in this section for details on specific permissions granted by each.
