Additional Notes​

  1. Access settings are applied at the Organization level. In other words, a selected setting for an element will apply to every project that a user has access to.
  2. A user has access to all Vessels and all Fleets contained within a Project that they have access to while respecting their Vessels and Fleets permissions.
  3. The User Permissions page is the only way to view all projects that exist.
  4. There is no way to guarantee that a user has access to all current and future projects. If a user has Create permissions for Projects, it is possible for them to create a "Rogue Project" that only they have access to.
