A permission set is a collection of settings and permissions that give users access to various tools and functions. The settings and permissions in permission sets are also found in profiles, but permission sets extend users’ functional access without changing their profiles.
In this lesson, we change the Custom: Sales Profile and remove the rights for those in that profile to be able to delete opportunities. We then create a Permission Set that allows users to delete opportunities and assign it to a user in the Custom: Sales Profile. We demonstrate the impact of the user being assigned to that permission set, which adds a Delete button to opportunity records to those that are assigned to it.
