Correct Answers

Organization Wide Defaults ✅


You control record-level access in four ways. They’re listed in order of increasing access. You use org-wide defaults to lock down your data to the most restrictive level, and then use the other record-level security tools to grant access to selected users, as required.

  • Org-wide defaults specify the default level of access users have to each other’s records.
  • Role hierarchies ensure managers have access to the same records as their subordinates. Each role in the hierarchy represents a level of data access that a user or group of users needs.
  • Sharing rules are automatic exceptions to org-wide defaults for particular groups of users, to give them access to records they don’t own or can’t normally see.
  • Manual sharing lets record owners give read and edit permissions to users who might not have access to the record any other way.
