For any modifications or changes to a record, having Full Access is essential. Without it, the following limitations apply:
Full Access Restrictions: If you find yourself unable to edit a record, it's likely because you do not have Full Access. To obtain the necessary permissions, the record owner or system admin must add your name or team under the security settings of the specific record.
App-Specific Default Settings: Be aware that some applications might have predefined access settings. These settings often grant Full Access to certain Team Members, while the rest may have Read-only permissions. This design ensures that only authorized individuals can make changes, maintaining data integrity and security.
Non-Editable Templates: Sometimes, the fields, templates, or forms you attempt to edit are set to read-only. This could be due to specific design choices made to preserve the structure and standardization of data entry.
Expression-Based Fields: Certain fields might be expressions calculated from other data points. These fields are inherently read-only because they are dynamically generated and not manually editable.
Note: Always check whether the field you're trying to edit is an expression or has been deliberately set to read-only to avoid unintended alterations.
Understanding and navigating the permission settings within Softools is crucial for efficient collaboration and data management. If you encounter issues with editing records, review your access level, and consult with the record owner or your Team settings. For any persistent challenges, don't hesitate to reach out to your system administrator for assistance.
