    Permissions help please.

    Hey guys. Sorry, im completely new with team speak and I have not a clue what im doing. Ive spent hours toying with the settings and just keep getting myself more lost than when I started. Can someone help.

    Basically Im looking to do this.

    Set up groups A, B, C
    Channels X, Y, Z

    Groups A have join access to X ONLY.
    Groups B have join access to X and Y ONLY
    Groups C have join access to X, Y and Z

    I would like Group A to be able to join the server without using a password or a token.
    Basically, Group X is a public channel where anyone can join.

    I dont understand the integer system. I would prefer to either grant user into one group or another.

    Please help. I feel TS3 has a ton of potential, I just cant figure it out.

    Thanks

    You need to adjust these 2 permissions.

    i_channel_join_power (adjust this in your server groups)
    i_channel_needed_join_power (adjust this for each channel)


    EXAMPLE
    Group A - join_power 20
    Group B - join_power 25
    Group C - join_power 30

    Channel X - needed_join_power 20
    Channel Y - needed_join_power 25
    Channel Z - needed_join_power 30


    Take a look at this spreadsheet that Soljia created and I modified w/ my clan's TS settings

    Can you explain to me the boxes value, skip, negate, and grant?

    If I assign a value does the grant need to hold the same value?

    Example:
    You created a Server Group called "Sticky". It contains only one permission: i_channel_join_power set to "-1", and a negate flag
    is applied to this permission. Now if I grant sticky group to any client they will not be able to switch channels anymore. This also
    works if the user I put into "Sticky" group has a positive i_channel_join_power set, since the negate flag will make sure the Tier 1
    result will be the lowest negated i_channel_join_power permission, so -1 or less than that. The reason why it is not possible to
    switch channels anymore is that normally a channel has no i_channel_needed_join_power set, and if a permission is not set it is
    assumed to be zero. Since -1 is smaller than zero, the user won't be able to join.

    Since Server Groups are the first Tier of permission layers, it is possible that they will be overwritten by a higher tier permission.
    Since it is sometimes desirable to prevent Channel Groups (Tier 4) to overwrite permissions that you received through your Server Group
    there is the "Skip" flag. If a permission in either Server Group (Tier 1) or Client Specific Permissions (Tier 2) has the skip flag set,
    this permission will not be altered by any overlapping permission in the Channel Groups (Tier 4) layer.

    Example: As the admin of your server you do not want the channel group to be able to restrict your permissions. By adding the skip flag to
    all of the permissions in the server admin group you make sure that no matter how these permissions are configured by any channel groups
    you may be granted, these channel group permissions will not take any effect on your abilities.
    All taken from the permissions document.

    The GRANT option is the highest value you can grant someone.

    i.e. you are server admin w/ a talk_power of 75 and it has a grant power of 75. This means you can grant others a talk_power of 75 or less.

    if you have read a documentation you wouldnt have to ask those questions.

    @specterm

    Take that all with a grain of salt... change your view from SHOW DESCRIPTIONS to SHOW NAMES (drop down menu at the bottom of your screenshot.

    Sure, I sent you a pm. I'd do it right now but I'm a little busy watching the Canada/USA hockey game on TV. It's that whole priorities thing
