The Explore default datasets have read-only access permissions for all explore users. When you create custom datasets, you can configure access permissions for your agents. After you add users to your Explore account, and define their role, you can choose which custom datasets they can view and change. This helps you secure your company information from unauthorized views or changes.
Read this article to learn about the various permissions available, and how to configure them for editors and admins. To learn how to create users with the editor and admin roles, see Giving agents access to Explore.
