Forgive me if this question is daft - my organization has just upgraded to Enterprise and I can't seem to get permissions to work the way I need them to.
I need to create permission sets that allow a specific set of staff to be able to see fields in various tabs (accounts, contacts, etc) however I want only a small portion of staff to be able to edit that data to ensure it's accuracy.
I don't believe we'll be utilizing the roles functionality as the landscape of the organization is not entirely hierarchal in a way that would benefit from this feature.
I created a profile and assigned it to a test user in a sandbox essentially providing access as to which Tabs are allowed, and read access to all of the fields they would need to see. I then tried to add a permission set on top of that to provide those select users the ability to edit required fields however the permission set never really seems to take effect. The user, even with the permission set assigned, is still only able to read all information but can't edit anything (even if their permission set allows it).
Can anyone provide some insight as to what I might be doing wrong here?
EDIT : I am aware of the Field Level Security functionality however this seems like it would be far more onerous as opposed to doing this with permission sets.
