Creating User Overrides

For those cases, when there are exceptions to the rules you've defined, you can create user overrides. User overrides provide a user-by-user way to express those exceptions. You might be further limiting the user's access, but you could also be broadening it, such as to lend an administrative flavor to the user's access.

Create a user override to grant a particular set of permissions to an individual. You might need to create an override if:
Use the following steps to create a user override on the permissions page you're editing:
  1. Under User Overrides, click Create a user override.
  2. In the box, start typing the name of the user for whom you want to set the override. Click the popup that displays the user's name.
  3. Click the Set override button to view the permissions you can set.
  4. In the permissions dialog for the person you selected, select and clear check boxes as needed. In the end you want the list of checked items to reflect the permissions the person should have. Note that you merely clear a check box to remove a permission -- there's no need to explicitly revoke the permission.
  5. Click Set Permissions to save the override you've created.
