Item View Fragment Permissions
Item view fragment permissions allow management to control specific information tabs or fields within item settings versus simply allowing or denying access to all item setting information. This means management could allow access to description information fields of an item on a read and/or write level, however deny access to pricing information fields on a read and/or write level.
