Error: This user, as the Default Lead Creator, must have the Modify All Data and Send Email permissions. Select a profile with these permissions enabled

Knowledge Article Number 000003769
Description

When attempting to change the profile for a user (for example from system administrator to standard user), you may receive an error message stating:


"Error: This user, as the Default Lead Creator, must have the "Modify All Data" and "Send Email" permissions. Select a profile with these permissions enabled."
 

Resolution

To fix this, navigate to :


Setup | Customize | Leads | Web to Lead

From here, change the Default Lead Creator. It will have to be a user with a profile with the "Modify All Data" and "Send Email" permissions enabled. Then return to the user record to change the profile for the original default lead creator.

For a Professional edition organization it will have to be another System Administrator, because of all the profiles available for a Professional Edition org, only this one has the "Modify All Data" and "Send Email" permissions enabled.
