  • All users you add in the future.

The ability to log in and see the Home page are automatically granted as default user permissions. If you want employees to have more privileges, for example the ability to see their Goal Plans, you have to grant additional default user permissions. Bear in mind, however, that all current and future employees will have the default user permissions you grant. Make sure you grant additional default user permissions only to the features that you want all employees to access.

If you want to revoke a permission you granted as a default user permission, you must revoke them from the Default User Permissions Setting page. You will not be able to revoke these permissions from other Admin Tools pages.
