Granting permissions to a user for a new Folder or Form (via Database Design)

The article presents how to grant permissions to a user for a Folder or Form.

You can grant permissions to a user that has been already added to a Database for a Form or Folder. Sometimes, a user is added to a Database but is not added to all the Forms or Folders needed or there is the need to grant specific permissions to the user.

This could happen because the resource was not there at the time the user was invited, because the user's permissions need to be changed due to a change in your programme or due to a mistake for example.

You can only grant permissions to users for a Resource if you have the "Manage users" permission for that Resource.
