Falcon distinguishes between public and guarded tree elements.

Public: All Falcon users can describe and modify content. All users have the permission to write.

Guarded: Users to whom responsibilities are assigned (e.g. in the profile or for activities) are given write permission for the respective guarded elements. Otherwise, hub owners and admins determine the permissions individually via the permissions tab.

Attention! Settings in the profile are inherited! Users who have been deposited as responsible in the profile have the permission to write in guarded tree elements. This permission is inherited downwards. If, for example, you have defined a user as responsible on the profile in an measure package, the user can write in all measures of that package. If you want to be sure that the permissions have been assigned as desired, you can view the tool from the perspective of any user. More about this here.

Set Guarded vs. Public 

Whether something is public or guarded can be determined in the tab Profile using the toggle button at the top right. The selected setting is inherited downwards through the tree - as you may already know it from Freeze. If you move a guarded measure into a public package, the protection remains intact. If you move a public measure into a guarded package, the measure is automatically guarded.

What do users see in the tree?

Falcon has numerous options to set permissions. It is possible to define which tree elements are visible to whom. 

But regardless of the settings made, a user with an authorization sees at least the measure name, the corresponding package name and the corresponding project name in the tree.
