I’m trying to set up a system where an admin can edit the permissions of many users in an app. There may be 1000 users in the app and there may be 10-20 permissions. Permissions would be things like:
- Can a user edit files
- Can a user delete files
- Can a user create discussions
So usually the permissions are yes/no when phrased as questions — so a
checkbox can be used here.
The idea at the moment is to use a
table which would display a left column with the list of users, and a table header that would display the permissions horizontally.
The table header would be fixed so you could scroll vertically and still see the permission that is checked/unchecked. The left column with the users would also be fixed so when scrolling horizontally you can see which permissions apply to which user.
Here is a mockup to illustrate this idea:
I think this is a good idea but I was wondering of there was any other effective approaches to this type of problem? Any suggestions on how I could improve this/approach it a different way would be great.
