In Trombinoscope Contacts Pro, on top of the standard permissions you can find for administration (such as configuring ACL, configuring options or accessing the administrative interface), there are a few, introduced in v3.0, that are specific to contact edition on the live side of the site.
Use this permission to allow the user group to create a new contact (logically, since the contact will be saved with the field created_by set to the user who creates the contact, the user group must also have at least edit.own access permissions).
Use this permission to allow the user group to delete a contact.
Use this permission to allow a user group to edit a contact. It gives the user overall permissions. To better target editing privileges, use the following permissions.
Use this permission to allow a group of users to edit all contacts that have been created by the user.
Use this permission to allow a group of users to edit all contacts that have been linked to the user.New
Use this permission to allow a group of users to download contact data.
