Quickly Set Restrict Access by Role Field

    Is there a way to design a button to set access permission in the  
    'Restrict access by role' field field quickly? I often have to change permissions so only one role can view or edit the field. Under the current system, I have to go in and edit each role individually. I would be nice to have a button to quickly set all roles to 'View' or 'None' .

    Hi QB Development,

    If you are looking to be able to adjust a fields permissions across all the roles that can access it without having to open each roles permissions this is possible. You can do this in the fields properties. You would open up the field properties and under Advanced there is a checkbox for permissions. If you check the checkbox it will open up a list of your roles and their current permissions. Updating each roles permissions on the field also updates the role itself as they are connected. 



    This way you can change the settings for a specific field without having to go into each role. I hope this suggestion is helpful.
