To change permissions of a user within Outcomes the user must first exist in the system. To add users to the system an upload of users through Data Management must occur.

A Site Admin can then go to Settings > Permissions to search for a user by first and last name or by username to bring up their account. The Site Admin can then give explicit permissions at any level within the organization. They can also give a varying degree of access depending on the role of the user.

An Admin within the organization can only grant permissions to any user at or below their level. They can also give a varying degree of access depending on the role of the user.

To make the process of granting permissions easier, Outcomes allows for implicit permissions to be granted to faculty members by uploading faculty information through Data Management. Any faculty assigned to a section receives implicit creator permissions at their section level.
