  • They are different sides of the same coin.  Append to means the ability to associate the given entity records with another entity, and append means the ability to associate other entity records with the current entity.

     

    For example, if you wanted to give people the right to create an opportunity and attach an account to the opportunity, they would need append to rights on the account and append rights on the opportunity.

     

    The permission level that you give in this area will determine which records that they can append and append to.  For example, if you only want them creating opportunities for accounts that they own, you would give them user level append to rights on the account and user level append to rights on the opp.

     

    Make sense?

  • Hi,

    It simply means relating one to another for e.g. Accounts and Notes i.e. there should be Append Privelege on Notes and Append To Privelege on Accounts.

    Hope it served your purpose. Shall keep you posted with latest updates.
