Aside from determining whether a member can read-only or contribute to your Waybook, there are two main ways to organize permissions in Waybook:
Subject and document access can be set individually or dictated by group membership. While you can set individual content access for your team members, group access allows you to create sets of members based on logical parts of your organization.
For example, you could put all members of your finance team into a group called 'Finance' and then manage access to certain subjects and documents for all members of your finance team, rather than having to set access for each individual member.
So giving a member access gives you two options: making the member part of a group relevant to their role within your organization or giving them access to specific subjects and documents, which will override any group access you have previously set.
