Advanced Sharing Settings

By default, access rights to creator records is set as private so that the record owner and his/her manager can oversee the creator data. However, using the Data Sharing Rules, you can extend the access rights to users belonging to other roles and groups. Once the data sharing rules are configured, users associated to other roles and groups can gain additional access to the records that belong to other users.

Key Features

  • By default all the modules have a Private option.
  • If default access for a module is set as Public Read/Write/Delete, everyone can access and update all the users’ data. Role Hierarchy and Sharing Rules will not be applied in this case.
  • If default access for a module is set as Read Only, everyone can only view the other users' records. In this case other users cannot modify the owner's records.
  • If default access for a module is set as Private, Role Hierarchy and Sharing Rules can be applied.
  • You cannot restrict the accessibility set in Organization's default permissions by writing the Sharing Rules. You can only extend the additional data visibility
