Field Reports are designed so that you can control the flow of information in your project. The customizable permissions allow flexibility with access control.
New report types can only be created by Administrators and Power Collaborators. There are no other project-level permissions for Field Reports.
Individuals vs. Group Permissions
You can assign field-report permissions to both individual team members or to a group of team members, based on their project-role, ie: Administrators, Power Collaborators, and Collaborators.
For example, if you assign a report to "Administrators," all current and future admins will be assigned to that report automatically. So, when you add a new administrator to a project, they will automatically have the appropriate field report permissions; likewise if a user is removed from a particular project-role (admin, collab, power collab) they will automatically lose access to the corresponding field reports.
