  • Clio Web App

Additional Information:

If a User Account has access to a permissions set that their Group does not, they will not lose access to the permissions granted to them at the User level.


Yes, any User within the Group will gain access to the enabled Group permissions.

There is no hierarchy or one set of permissions will overwrite the other; it is based on more-permissions, such as if there is permissions granted in User but not in Group, the user will still have that permission and vice versa.
