 +===== Adding Custom Permissions =====
 +
 +Staff users are assigned a set of permissions and for the Administrator class of users, some of those
 +permissions are grantable. A grantable permission is one that an administrative user can grant
 +individually to a single user. This is done in the Administration > User Permission Editor interface by
 +entering the user's library card barcode and adding checkboxes beside the appropriate permissions. 
 +
 +<note warning>Though LocalAdmins have the ability to grant permissions, PINES/GPLS staff recommends
 +caution when doing so, as customized permissions may cause problems down the line. For
 +example, if a staff member changes employment positions at a library, her/his permissions
 +profile group may change, but any custom permissions will continue to be assigned unless
 +manually removed by the LocalAdmin. It would be beneficial to keep a record of such
 +individualized changes.</note>
 +
 +Locally-assigned permissions override permissions assigned "higher up" in the hierarchy. For
 +example, if the Circ2 profile has VIEW_USER assigned at the Consortium scope, and you
 +assign that same permission to a specific Circ2 at the Branch scope, that staff member will be
 +limited to viewing/accessing user accounts at her/his branch.
 +
 +Permissions assigned at the permissions profile group level are not able to be removed on a per user
 +basis. LocalAdmins must assign a profile with fewer permissions to decrease the permissions level of
 +a user.
