    Please change each the "Manage (create / edit / delete) groups" from a single setting to three separate settings.



    Manage (create / edit / delete) groups



    Should become:

    • Create groups
    • Edit groups
    • Delete groups


    One reason for this request:

    This would allow you to set TAs (or other roles) to having only the permissions needed for that role instead of none of them or all of them. For example, the ability to edit groups but not add and delete groups.



    Per Cosme Salazar in More granular permissions for admins and In Permissions, Change "ADD, EDIT, and DELETE" into Three Separate Settings I have divided out the multiple functionality settings into their own requests. There are now 10 separate requests.

    Thanks, everyone for your comments. This is an idea I will archive for now. But the big takeaway here is that the DELETE permission should generally exist apart from the CREATE and EDIT permissions. Lesson learned and we'll see how we might apply that principle going forward.
