Add a button for Access Control to the database properties dialog
Use this IdeaSpace to post ideas about the Notes Client.
Core/Frameworks (Incl. sidebar, rich text editor)
database properties box
It would be logical to have a button to open the ACL dialog from the database properties. Put it with the other settings buttons: Archive, Replication, Encryption, and Replication History.

Nice, but do you want most users going there? Many DB managers (a) do not know they have the access, just that they can do their job; (b) do not know the power of the ACL space; (c) can really make a mess of things unknowingly. Now for the rest of us, that actually have a clue in how to use it, sure it makes sense to save a few clicks. Personally, I do not mind using the current method, but I can see the allure of it.
Then the average users that click it out of curiosity and have the advanced menu options removed.. "Oh, <steve> has more access than me?" or "Why do my colleagues have Editor access and not me?" Just makes these arguments more frequent as many users did not know the ACL piece existed. With it in their face, people will click what they see.
If you can tie-it to the Advanced Menus settings as a toggle, great. Harder due to the design, but a thought.

Bill, if the users have Manager access and don't know what the ACL does, they shouldn't have Manager access. Why would they need Manager if they aren't going to edit the ACL? Why are you using individual user names instead of groups in the ACL? Why aren't you worried that they could look at Replication History (and delete it by mistake?)
I like removing steps, so voting for this....
