If the Users are grouped by any category (f.e. managers, supervisors, consultants etc) then you can create custom User Groups and make sure that everyone assigned to these groups will have the same permissions as all the other members of the group. F.e. all managers can have edit rights for projects and resources while supervisors or consultants have read-only rights.
Must-Know About This FeatureIf the User's permissions were specified before then assigning the User to a User group will override these permissions with the ones applied for the Group. If you remove a User from a User group then the permission from this group will still remain active. Change the permissions for the User manually if needed.
