  2. In the Properties dialog box, on the Permissions tab, click Add Users/Groups.
  3. In the Add Users/Groups dialog box, select groups or individual users to have permissions to run this transition.

    Select one or more groups or expand All Users or a group to select individual users.

    Type a string in the Filter field to display only users and groups whose names contain that string.

  4. Click OK.
  5. On the Permissions tab, in the left column, select a user or group.

    Use the Shift and Ctrl keys to make multiple selections.

  6. In the right column, select a check box in the table below to grant the permission or clear a check box to remove the permission.

    Permit Can send files through the transition.
