Edit and View Permissions

In previous versions of Gridbox, you could see the option "Access" which were available for each item (section, row, column and plugin). This option allows you to set the edit rights for a specific Joomla user group.

In Gridbox 2.3.0 we have renamed this option to "Edit" to make it much user-friendly and also we have added a new option - View.
