How This Affects the Reporting Experience: These Permissions expose or enable various dialogs, tabs, and features in the user interface that are presented during Request design or execution. These permissions are normally set in the Report Set Permissions. This screen allows you to override the settings for this specific user.

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

Override Active Report Set Permissions: This must be checked for any of the other settings on this page to take effect. If this is not checked, the Report Set Permissions will control this user’s permissions.
