Assigning multiple policies to a user

can one user have access to multiple policies?

my employer would like me to create separate policies for different units.
but, they would like some individuals to have access to more than one
policy. for the purpose of viewing multiple contact lists. can this be done?

or, is there a better way of doing it.

the functionality of the profiles is the same throughout.

the purpose it only to restrict users to certain contacts and at the same
time give an individual access to multiple lists.


thanks in advance!!

Re: Assigning multiple policies to a user

Currently you can have only 3 levels of settings and they are not
cumulative:

1 - Default System policy: applies to everyone
2 - Single user policy: each user can have a policy that overrides the
system policy for attributes defined on that policy.
3 - User settings: Settings on the user object itself. These overide
the other 2 levels.

The concept you mentioned, cumulative admin-defined contacts, is
something that we have discussed adding to the product; just need pm
buy-off.

If the contact list exists at any level, it will override those from
other levels, unless the upper levels are locked. But in that case, the
user would not be able to change the contact list.

Re: Assigning multiple policies to a user

Nope, only one policy per user. If you assign a user to more than one
policy the last one edited is the one in effect. What you can do is set
the policies for the business units and lock those contact lists. Then
for this handful of users, create a different policy for them but give
them access to all users
