I need to give a branch accountant the ability to:
Add new suppliers with the ability to edit their information.
View and create invoices for the other suppliers that he didn’t create.
As in the image, I can’t add two different permissions for the role being the creator, and for the same role being only a viewer and not a creator of the record (supplier)
If I Check “Only if creator” he will not able able to even view the other people’s suppliers.
If I try to add a clone of this permission with the same 0 level but unchecking the "Only if creator nothing happens.
Any suggested solutions?
So, if I give him the permission to write and create, and uncheck “Only if Creator”, he will be able to edit other users’ draft invoices, unless I use a work around and add another restriction permission like a branch or territory which is considered a complication in the workflow
What I need is a way to allow him to view other people’s invoices, without editing, and create and edit his own invoices.
Now, a user given these role permissions will be able to:
Create new customers, edit them and add details at any time.
View customers created by other users and view their details in the customer master, and create invoices for these customers.
If you create a role permission while unchecking “Only if creator” first, you won’t be able to create the other “Only if Creator” role permission.
I used it in V12, and with V13, I didn’t test it thoroughly in V13, but I guess it works for me with the following condition:
Permissions can’t intersect between being an owner and not and owner. check the image below:
You will find that the permissions in the “Only if creator” section, are taken off from the user when he is not an owner.
For example: if you give him the ability to read in both (an owner, and not an owner), He won’t be able to read unless he is the creator of the document, because you made a limited permission in the (only if owner condition)
So, what you should do is: give write and amend only to the owner (Also submit and cancel if you want). And give all the other permissions to the other (Non-Owner) cases.
After retesting this on my current V13, I found that the system only uses the “Only if Creator” conditions and doesn’t use the other “non-creator” permissions selected.
I guess the solution should be in editing the pythin files responsible for permission conditions, which I have no experience to deal with. @ sabiyamalbari
I believe that Workflows can make this possible. As some states can be checked for “Self Approval”. I am not sure of that, I am still playing around with the Workflows to get it perfectly useful for my work.
You don’t believe that I was watching a video from your channel before writing this comment.
In version 13.14 they made a minor change in “if_owner” to enable one user to have two roles, one as owner, and other as a reader only. I have not tried it yet, but I guess it will help. I will update after trying it.
