If you've been granted User access, you have the most common user role. It is the default role applied to all FiscalNote accounts when they are created. Read below to learn what you have the ability to do and not to do, as well as recommendations for ensuring you're set up for success.
What Can I and Can't I Do As a User?
You have access to all data in your organization's subscription, and the ability to use all features that FiscalNote has to offer.

The work of others that you cannot delete includes:
You also do not have the ability to set or change user roles or create User Groups for any project-based work. If you require these capabilities to perform your work, please contact your team lead or FiscalNote Account Manager.
