Can I edit the Contact record that is owned by others related to the Account, without giving Modify All object level permission for a profile?

1 Answer 1


You need to write a sharing rule to open up the access rights. It can be criteria or ownership based as per your use case.

Provided that, the user's profile/permission set must have Edit access to Contact object.

Refer Define Sharing Rules

Here is a way to open up visibility & access rights

  • There's more ways than just sharing rules that you can do this, though, but you're on the right track.
