  • Creating a User Profile
    Profile is essentially a definition of a set of permissions granted to a group of users.
  • Adding a Single User
    The maximum number of users you can create is determined by your Salesforce Edition.
  • Adding Multiple Users
    The maximum number of users you can create is determined by your Salesforce Edition. Depending on the number of available licenses, you can create up to 10 users.
  • Assigning Conga CLM License to a User
    In addition to Salesforce licensing, a user profile must be assigned to the Conga CLM license.
  • Assigning Users to Queues
    Queues allow groups of users to manage a shared workload more effectively. A queue is a location where records can be routed to await processing by a group member. If the sharing model for all objects in the Queue is Public Read/Write/Transfer, you do not need to assign users to the queue, as all users already have access to the records for those objects.
  • Providing Read Access
    This allows preview and generate agreement actions to read the document password from the Admin object without allowing them to view it. You can set the permissions and page layouts for the selected profile. The permissions defined here control access at the object level. Set access levels based on the functional requirements for the profile. For example, create different groups of permissions for individual contributors, managers, and administrators.
