here is my simple but a little clumsy scenario I have 4 users under a profile. My requirement is user1 should be able to delete his/her Opportunities but not user2,user3,user4. How can I achieve this, please suggest me guys.

    If you have created permission set and user2, user3 are still able to delete then yes you can deselect it and give it a try. – Nihar Aug 8 '17 at 10:14
