Some Commons users can delegate authority directly to another Commons user so that user can access features in Commons (e.g., FCOI). Some users can also grant authority to another Commons user to access features of their own account (e.g., Personal Profile). Depending on the type of Commons user granting the authority and the type of user being granted, delegation could occur for the following:
A PI may delegate his Progress Report authority to any active user within his same institution.
A PI may grant someone with an ASST role the authority to work with the Commons Status feature by delegating Status authority.
Any active Commons user can grant another active user the ability to enter his Personal Profile by delegating PPF authority.
A PI or a Sponsor may grant an ASST the ability to work with xTrain by delegating xTrain authority.
