View-Only - Getting Started

Welcome to the View-Only section of the Forecast Help Center! This section has only information that’s relevant to your particular permission level, so you don’t need to browse through everything else.

How do I know whether I have View-Only permissions?

If you’re only in Forecast to see your team’s schedule but not create assignments for others, you most likely have View-Only permissions. If you want to make sure, check the top menu bar in your Forecast account. If your team name is present but there’s no option to Manage, then you have View-Only permissions.
