These Permissions expose or enable various dialogs, tabs, and features in the user interface that are presented during Request design or execution. They can be overridden for individual users by setting the User Permissions in the User Manager.

Note: Uncheck the box next to any permission you want to hide when a Designer or End-User is using Foxfire!
