[Status: Backburner ⌛️] ability to limit edits to only something the user created.

I'm adding some new role settings for a custom Agile-based workflow.

It occurs to me, that it would be nice to have a slightly more finite control of permissions, by adding the condition, "if they created it." It's similar to some of the permissions I've seen in a Drupal site admin. 

For example, currently we have "Edit Task Description" - it's an all-or-nothing choice. 

I think we should split these into two: 

1) "Edit OWN task descriptions" ...they can only edit something, if they created it.
2) "Edit ALL task descriptions" ... the usual, current permissions. 

For a use case... In my situation, I would like a task to only be edited by the person who created that task, while it sits in a backlog folder - controlled by the assigned role. After it's moved forward to another folder, others can edit and do as needed with the task.

We're having almost the opposite problem. Task creators always have access to the task, normally at the full permission. When employees are moved to a new department, they shouldn't be able to continue to look at the ongoing work of their old department. I've made a post about this here.

However, I'm all in favor of more granular permissions. Splitting existing permission settings up into "own" and "all" would help us collaborate on incoming work.

A quick update: the status remains "Backburner"; this suggestion will be taken into account next year when the team is working on account roles.
