1.    No Access :

Removes all access a user has to cases associated with the specified account. The user will not be able to open, edit, receive updates for, or even see the cases for that account.

2.    Basic Access : Gives users access to only the cases that they own. They will not be able to view cases owned by their team or be added to cases as an Interested party. This option serves most users.

3.    Full Access :

Gives a user total access to cases associated with the specified account. The user will be able to open new cases, view open cases, be added as an interested party, post updates and receive updates for cases on that account. This access is restricted to the Named callers listed in your IBM contract.

4.    Administrator :

In addition to the access given by the full access setting,

Administrator access provides the ability to view and edit other users on a given account. They will be able to make changes to access, and approve or deny requests for more access. This is restricted to the named Admin on the contract.
