Assign Rights – For Managers

This article explains how managers can assign rights to their employees without having full administrator privileges.


In ResourceFirst, designated managers can assign rights to their employees. To enable this, two things have to be set up:

  • In Administration>Server Settings, “Allow Managers to Assign Rights to their Users” must be checked.
  • The manager must be set up with R3 rights. See Administering Rights and Privileges for more detail.

With this in place, when a manager clicks on the dropdown on his or her user profile, there will be an option to Assign Rights.

From there, the manager will be taken to the Assign Rights function and can grant rights accordingly. A manager can only grant rights to the level that he or she has, and to users that are in nodes that he or she is authorized to.  See Administering Rights and Privileges for more detail.
