The patron registration/edit screen now has an interface for adding secondary permission groups (profiles) to a user account. This gives library staff the ability to assign sets of permissions from multiple permission groups to a single user. For example, if you have a cataloger who also does acquisitions, and you have separate permission groups for Catalogers and Acquisitions, the new UI allows you to add acquisitions as a secondary perm group on the cataloger’s account, thus granting all Acquisitions permissions to that user without changing the user’s primary profile group.
