1g. Manage Form Builder Permissions

See Quick Start Guide – Form Builder Customization for the context of this article. The previous article was 1f. Manage IM Form Builder Scripts and the next article is 1h. Manage Tabs, Sections, And Fields In IM Form Designer.

Administrators can use Form Builder permissions to manage the visibility of forms, tabs, and fields.

Permissions are User Role-based (as they are in the rest of Plutora). Forms and tabs can only be made visible or not visible. Fields can be made hidden, visible, or visible and editable.
