Selecting display options

Select an option that performs an important function in your system.

  • Is this option part of a broader functionality?
  • Should all users with rights to this functionality have access to this option?

For example, should all users with access to Incident Records in Incident Management be able to close a record?

By using a condition expression in a displayoption record, a system administrator can limit a user’s right to close record without restricting rights to the other features of Incident Management or incident record options.

Note: Users with SysAdmin capability will be able to view, update and save existing incident records, but will not be allowed to close records.
