How much power should admin users have?
- Edit Users?
View ALL files?
As it stands now, they can do the first three, but cannot view all files. This seems like a bit of a conflict since most people consider administrators as people who have access to all things. On the topic of permissions, what about "Reviewers". If I can review the Accounting departments' files, why shouldn't I also be able to see all of their files in the files list? Currently reviewers cannot. What if you are reviewing a document and you think there might already be the same document in that department? No luck.
So I am proposing a couple of changes to the permissions of admin and reviewer:
1) Let admin users see all files
2) Let reviewers see all files for the departments they are reviewers for
Any feedback on this?
