One of my favourite things in Life 2 is the new Site Security interface – called Site Permissions in Life 2. This area has been totally revamped and reconstructed, in a way that makes the whole security mechanism much more understandable and easier to use.
Users can now see the whole site structure here and select to apply permissions to any subsite level (or multiple levels) needed with just a few clicks. This means that users no longer have to navigate to each subsite in order to set its permissions – it can all be done via the top level site's administration area in one go!
User groups are also now organized in a similar tree structure, making it easier for users to locate the ones that they need to give permissions to.
Not to mention the whole new set of security roles available...
But there are even more benefits to consider! The most important of these being the ability to inherit any top-level site permissions to subsites (with just one click) while at the same time using the lock feature to exclude any subsites that need a different set of permisisons from those inherited. This can save a lot of time and effort while giving users more control over site security.
We've already uploaded a video demonstrating the above features in a previous blog post. If you've missed it, you can take a look at the video below or read our earlier site permissions blog post:
