    Can you please just grey out options that the end user doesn't have access to when their defined role doesn't allow the tool? There is no way to easily see what the Administrator enabled/disabled for us end users - it makes for a very frustrating experience using this software and using the Esri generic help that assumes you have complete access to everything.

    I am not an administrator of this system so I know that many items I could have access to I don't. That's OK, but when I am told just go over and select X, then Y to get something done I can CAN"T SEE IT on the menu it drives me NUTS. I spent a couple of hours trying to figure out why I could not see the Tile Layer option. I was following the instructions, I deleted, shared, deleted, shared, re-read the Esri AGOL help site, deleted, shared, WHAT A WASTE OF TIME.

    Finally I had an AGOL Adminsitrator look at what I could see and they said "Oh! - you don't see that. Your role must not allow you to do this."

    I don't mind not having access, but why is this removed completely from the webpage - can you please just grey these out? That way I would know that I don't ahve access to thsi and I don't waste my time trying to figure out what the heck I am doing wrong.
