Types of Admin Permissions
You can define several types of permissions for each admin.
Selecting the "View" option will allow the admin to view the Users tab only, without editing the user's information. They will be able to access the "Users details" but won't have permission to edit users' information or edit the user's profile page.
Selecting "Add & Edit" will allow admins to add new users and edit exciting users' details from the user's profile page.
Admins will have permission to edit the user's details within the "Users Details" tab. However, they won't have permission to edit or add Custom Feilds in the "Users Details" tab.
Selecting "Manage Admins" will allow the admin to manage other admins' information and permissions from the Users or Admins profile page, however, they won't have permission to edit the User Details tab.
Selecting "Manage User Details" will allow admins to edit and manage exciting custom field details as well as add new ones. They will not however have permission to edit Users' information in the Users Detail tab or on the user's profile page.
In the example below we see an admin with only the permissions to manage user details won't have permission to edit Users' information on the user's profile page.
Below you can see that admins with the Manage User Details permission can add new fields under the "User Details" tab

What would an admin see if they try to perform an action they don't have permission for?
If an admin tries to perform an action without permission, such as "adding users", a pop-up message will appear stating he should contact the admin.
