How Can I Set Permissions?

Process Street has multiple ways in which you can configure permissions, letting you directly control what users in your organization can see, edit or work on.

Organization level permissions

Organization level permissions effect a user’s access levels across the entire organization (and in some cases if you have to pay for the user or not).

There are three main levels of users:

These permissions can be controlled by going into your organization manager (or click on your organization’s name in the top right of your in-app view to access this).

Users: You will need to be an Administrator to be able to access this page.

Folder permissions

Permissions on folders are applied to any templates in that folder. This gives you an easy way to control permission on a group of templates, instead of setting them all independently.

The four levels of member or group permissions on a folder are:

  • Can Edit and Run
  • Can View and Run
  • Can View Own and Run
  • Can View Own

Note: Folder permissions may override any template level permissions you have already set.

Template and checklist permissions

Permissions on templates and checklists affect only that specific item, meaning that the same user can have different permission levels for different templates and checklists. This makes it easy to give users access to only what they need to see.

These permissions can be managed in the settings of the template or checklist that you wish to restrict access to.

The four levels of individual permissions on a template are:

  • Can Edit and Run
  • Can View and Run
  • Can View Own and Run
  • Can View Own

Note: Folder and template permissions can be given to both users and groups.
