Messaging when user does not have permission to edit some data

I'm working on an app where users have fine-grained permissions to edit
specific bits of data on a page (edit buttons appear next to each set of
data). The problem is, when users don't have the permission to edit the
data, then they think it's not editable - period. They don't realize someone
else in their organization might have permission to change it. Instead, they
call the app host's customer service.

What's a friendly, non-obtrusive way to let them know that even though they
cannot edit the data, someone else might be able to?

There are some sensitivities around this.

indicating a list has been filtered

Hi all,

I'm working on a design for filtering based on tags and statuses. The
main page view is a list of goals and action steps, as many as 30

Users can associate one or more tags with each step.

Shared elements in Visio across files

Hi there,

I can't figure out how to share a background across multiple files
in Visio. Our team is using a source control program so we want to
have each wireframe in it's own Visio file. I want to have the
template background in another file, but if I update the background,
I don't want to have to go change every page. It's like a server
side include, or "instance"

Any ideas?

JOB; Mobile Graphic Design; San Francisco; iSkoot; Contract 4-6 weeks


We have an immediate need for someone who is savvy with Adobe Photoshop and/or Fireworks, and ideally has some experience with mobile design. We have a 4-6 week project that involves taking a relatively well established visual design direction and extended it to the full set of screens in an application.

Ideally this is a visual designer with some user interaction skills as well (but not a must)
