Standard Object Permissions 

Documents 

  • Create permission is required on the Documents object in order for a user to utilize email functionality with Conga Composer. Delete permission is also highly recommended for the Documents object.
  • The Documents object is used in Conga Composer as a temporary holding area for the merged output file while the email is assembled. The Create permission allows a user to utilize this functionality while the Delete permission ensures that each document that is created by a user is subsequently replaced the next time that user initiates a Conga Composer email process.

Custom Object Permissions 

Provide at least Read access (Create, Edit, Delete, View All, and Modify All are not required for end-users and can be enabled at your discretion) for the following objects. Read, Create, Edit, and Delete permissions are required for Conga Email Staging.

  • Conga Templates℠

    Conga Email Staging is a component of Conga Email; Read, Create, Edit, and Delete permissions are required for any profile using Conga Email.

  • Conga Queries℠
