    Can you give an example as to when you would assign an unspecified license type to a group? I can see why you may want to on the individual user level as they could be added to multiple groups that have different levels. I just can't quite think of a scenario where that option makes sense for a group.

    Hello Spencer,

    This can be useful when having multiple groups assigned to a user, each responsible for a part of the permission set.

    For example if you have multiple departments in organisation you can have one group that handles view rights for the full department, and another group that handles which clients the user can use depending on his role within the department.
    The first one should have unspecified set as it will apply to any role within the department.

    The permissions of the group add up to eachother. In case of conflicting permissions highest will win.

    I hope this answers your question,

    Regards,
    Vincent

    Can you explain what ‘Taxonomy’ capability permits in Elvis 6? In v5, it might enable tagging via ’Taxonomy’ panel located left side in Air client. In v6, there is no such special panel, left panel work as filter only while taxonomy in right panel is enabled regardless of this capability permission.

    Hi Sergey,

    This is correct, the Taxonomy capability has no effect on the Pro client UI.

    It was indeed meant to enable the Air client left side panel.
    Since this panel has not been implemented in the Pro client, the capability has become obsolete.

    We will update the documentation to match this.

    Thank you for pointing it out,
    Vincent

    Hello Vincent,

    Besides documentation, ‘Taxonomy’ capability should be reviewed in app too.

    Regards,
