Color Legend Permissions

Campaign Calendar super users designated to manage the Company Color Settings will also need access to a special permission set. Company Color Settings are global, therefore any updates made to the color legend will be visible by all Campaign Calendar users, thus we recommend this is limited to a few select marketing power users. Separately, each user will have the choice to manage their own personal color settings.

  1. From Setup, locate Manage Users | Users
  2. Select user.
  3. In the Permission Set Assignments related list, click Edit Assignments.
