Understanding the Manage Programs Permission

This page is designed to help you understand what users with and without the global Manage Programs permissions will be able to access, update, delete and see when you have installed Easy Agile Programs. We understand that privacy and control are important when creating your Programs and we hope that this documentation gives you the visibility and confidence you need when getting started with Easy Agile Programs. 

For more details on how to grant users/groups the Manage Programs permission, see our documentation here
