  2. Click on Admin --> Lists
  3. Find the list named "Customer" with the scope of "Permission", select it and then click on edit selected lists in the upper right

  4. Click on Add new entry at the bottom. This will create a new line with an empty text box. The text box is the new permission that will be added to the customer property restrction settings section of the user role
    1. The box must be filled out with the apprpriate permission name. This is all case sensitive, so make sure you enter the permission name correctly from the list below.
    2. The permission must be ended with a .Edit or a .View, this is also case sensitive. Example: FirstName.Edit (changes if the user can edit the First Name field) or FirstName.View (changes if the user can see the First Name field)
    3. The different permissions are:
