Based on a user's role, the information visible to that user in Quick Base can be manipulated by an admin using: Dynamic Form Rules, App-Level, Table-Level, or Field-Level Permissions. In prior articles, we covered Dynamic Form Rules and App and Table-Level Permissions in Adding a New User Role. In this article, the focus will be on Field-Level Permissions.
There are two ways to modify Field-Level Permissions: from App-Level Permissions or from individual fields. For any field, you can set the Field-Level Permission for any Role to be View, Modify, or None. App-Level and Field-Level Permissions accomplish the same goal, but the user experience is slightly different. From App-Level Permissions, an admin can customize a role's permissions for all of a table's fields at once, but cannot compare different roles side-by-side. From Field-Level Permissions, an admin can compare different roles side-by-side, but can only edit that one field's permissions.
