For earllier release Security, see Add Event Security on User/Group Editors

Overview

Privileges

There are no assignable Privileges related to Event Calendars.  By Default, PU’s have an implied Privilege to “Create Event Calendars”.

Ownership

A PU who creates an Event Calendar is its default Owner.  As Owner, a PU full edit capabilities.

Any Administrator may change the Owner of an Event Calendar to any  PU thereby giving full Edit Accses.

Permissions

Only Admins may grant Permission to allow both Regular and Power Users to add or modify Events associated with a specific Event Calendar associated with an element from the element's Viewer.

PU’s do not have the ability to grant these Permissions, even to Groups that the PU has Permission to Edit.

Permissions can be applied to:

  1. Individual PU's
  2. Groups for inheritance by members of the Group

The Owner setting is not visible to a PU that owns the Event Calendar.
