1.3.1 Granting Delegate Permissions

Three levels of permissions are commonly granted to a delegate: reviewer, author, and editor. These permissions are set on a specific set of special folders. The delegator sets the level of permissions based on the activities the delegate will be performing, as follows:

  • Reviewer permissions give the delegate read-only access to items.

  • Author permissions allow the delegate to read all items, create new items, and delete and modify the items that the delegate creates.

  • Editor permissions provide full control of all items to the delegate.

Additionally, the delegate can be granted permission to send items on behalf of the delegator. This level of permission allows the delegate to respond to Message objects, manage meeting-related objects, and/or manage Task objects.
