As an admin, you have the ability to grant or restrict access to specific Communications Enterprise pages and features on a per-user basis. These permissions are associated to a user's login.
Set User Login Permissions
- Access the Admin interface.
- Navigate to Settings > Users.
- On the resulting page, each of your organization's users are listed. Select the desired user, and then click Permissions.
- The available permissions are grouped by category. Click a group to expand it and view its options (more than 100 permissions are available, so you may need to drill down multiple levels to find the permission you're looking for). Refer to the Permission Categories section below for more information about each permission.
- Check/uncheck boxes to grant/remove a permission OR click a setting with a dashed underline (_ _ _) and select a different value.
- Click Save to apply your changes to the user's login.

Limit No Category by Login
If categories are enabled in your account, you can also enable/disable the No Category flag. This flag gives admins the ability to set whether messages and groups can be exempt from having to be assigned to a category.
While this ability has some advantages, it also presents the potential for someone to create, for example, a message and inadvertently not assign it to a category, which could compromise your account's subscription settings.
To prevent such a scenario, the Limit No Category by Login permission was added. This enables admins to hide/show the No Category option to users, based on login, and the following will result.
- If the permission is enabled for a login, that user will not be presented with the No Category option and, therefore, will be required to choose a category when creating a message or a group.
- If the permission is disabled for a login, that user will be able to create messages and groups without having to assign a category. These users should set up your transactional messages.
Set Limit No Category by Login
The Limit No Category by Login option can be set in either of two places in Communications Enterprise.
NOTE: These locations are simply a "toggle" of, and should mirror, one another. The latest setting, irrespective of where it was set, will be applied to the login.
To manage the permission for one login:
- Access the Admin interface.
- Navigate to Settings > Users.
- Select a login and click Permissions.
- In the dialog, expand the Tools section.
- Check/uncheck the Limit No Category by Login box and click Save.
TIP: While in this dialog, you can manage other permissions for this user.
To manage the permission for multiple logins:
- Access the Admin interface.
- Navigate to Settings > Permissions > Limit No Category by Login.
- Locate the logins that you want to manage and check/uncheck the boxes in the Allow column (or use the Select All or Select None options in the upper right).
- Click Submit.
The update will be confirmed at the top of the page.
