Why are some organization names or assignment rows in italics in Authority Manager?

Inactive organization names are shown in italics. Inactive organizations continue to be accessible in Authority Manager, because they may have outstanding accounting or reporting needs that require authority.

Privileges with "grant-only" status are shown in italics. The person who has a grant-only privilege is not authorized to actually use the privilege in any business system, but only to grant the privileges to others, so the privilege is effectively inactive.

For example, if a person has a "grant-only" approvals privilege, they are not actually authorized to approve transactions, and will not be selected as an approver in the workflow. They can, however, designate other people as approvers by granting the approvals privilege to them.
