Delegate Permissions Editor versus Author RRS feed

  • Question

  • When setting up a Delegate, what is the difference between setting up a user as an 'EDITOR' versus an 'AUTHOR'? I understand that the Editor can 'modify items' whereas an Author cannot, but what exactly would those modifications be?

  • Hi David,

    Author

    With Author permission, as a delegate, you can read and create items, and modify and delete items you create. For example, a delegate can create task requests and meeting requests directly in the manager's Task or Calendar folder, and then send either item on the manager's behalf.

    Editor

    With Editor permission, as a delegate, you can do everything an Author can do, plus modify and delete the items the manager created.

  • Hello,

    with the rights of an Editor you not only can change items but also delete every single item, not only the items you have created.

    I'm assuming then that folder permissions trump permissions at the Delegate level?

    Also, Can an Author delete, move, respond to incoming requests such as email messages?

    I'm in the process of changing how we manage a general mailbox where there's not a 'owner' per se.

  • Hi,

    This blog can answer your question 1.

    For question 2, Author can not delete and move emails but can respond them, but Editor can do these things.

    I didn't see the explicity q & a that I was looking for in the blog.

    Since we're dealing with an Inbox (eg info@abcliquors.com), can a Publishing Author move the mailitems from the Inbox to an existing Sub Folder?
