1. A very useful feature is to right click on a Vehicle/User and select Overview. It will show you which exact Privileges a user has enabled.
2. There is a useful feature in SiteAdmin to login "impersonated". In the application list in SiteAdmin click on the icon left to the name of the application, then select the username to login as. In this way you can verify that a user gets the proper experience when logged in.
