    It would be nice if you could assign all of the module permissions at once if they were the same.  For example , I created a role called ContentEditor, I want this role to have view, create, modify and delete permissions for every module.  Currently I have to click on every module, then select permissions, then select the group, then check each permission then apply.  That is a lot of clicking. 

    Ideally you would be able to select more the one group, lets say in a checked list box.  Then in another checked list box you could select each module and last the permissions to be applied to each module.

    Behind the scenes you could create the required individual permission records.

    Hello Joseph,
    You are right, the permissions are not easy to set and our intention is to change that and to make one place for setting all the permissions, as you suggest. Also, you will be able to set them locally as it is now.

    Moreover, our intention is to make one more view for permissions - to browse them by task, not only by role. Example: 'Who will be able to edit blog posts?' (you have to select roles: administator, blog editor, blog writer, etc.)
