giveable permissions

Post by Avdon »

I was thinking that for "work groups" It could be better if users can give their permissons or some of them to other users. So when the admin give a user the permissions A,B,C,D he also is giving him the permission to give A,B,C,D permissions to other users.

Why don't you try to take this thought a bit further? Use cases where the current functionality does not work, if it should be just extended or completely remade in some cases. I can't imagine an example where this would be useful and all use cases I can think of can work with current permission settings (in terms of acquiring permissions).

In order to propose a change here, you need to justify your idea and give a more elaborate suggestion.
Please think before you post.
