Permissions options:

  • Read: User/group can only view and download the library contents but cannot make changes.
  • Add/edit own: Users/groups can only add slides and edit the content they own (Only for content that is uploaded through PowerPoint or through Batch Upload. This does not apply when connected to a CMS which is a read-only interface.)
  • Add/edit all: Edit anyone’s content (Only for content that is uploaded through PowerPoint or Batch Upload. This does not apply when connected to a CMS. This does not work when connected to a CMS which is a read-only interface.)
  • Admin: Read/write access for all content, allow changes in permissions, take ownership of content, and access deleted content from the history.
