Giving user permissions to create fields

Hello - 

Is there a way through permission sets to give a user permissions to create new fields? We are using the Agile tool for developers and we want just a user to be able to create new fields for the sprint objects.
Is this possible?

User profile must have 'Customize Application' permission must be enabled. There is no separate permission in salesforce which will allow user to create only fields for the objects. The 'Customize Application' permission in profile will give you access to the following permission as well
  • Customize Application (Permission):
  • Customize the organization using App Setup menu options.
  • Edit messages and custom links;
  • Modify standard picklist values;
  • Create, edit, and delete custom fields;
  • Create, edit, and delete page layouts (also requires the “Edit” permission for the object, for example, “Edit” on accounts);
  • Set field-level security;
  • Create, edit, and delete custom links;
  • Edit the Lead Settings;
  • Activate big deal alerts;
  • Create record types;
  • Set up Web-to-Case and email response rules;
  • Set up Web-to-Lead and email response rules;
  • Set up assignment and escalation rules;
  • Set up business hours;
  • Set up Email-to-Case or On-Demand Email-to-Case;
  • Edit Self-Service page layouts and portal color theme (also requires the “Manage Self-Service Portal” permission to set up and maintain Self-Service settings and delete your organization's Self-Closed Case Status value);
  • Set up and enable multilingual solutions;
  • Set up team selling;
  • Set up account teams;
  • Map custom lead fields;
  • Manage queues;
  • Create, edit, and delete workflow rules, tasks, field updates, outbound messages, and alerts;
  • Create, edit, and delete custom s-controls, custom objects, and custom tabs;
  • Rename tabs;
  • Manage custom apps and Service Cloud console apps;
  • Create and edit public calendars and resources;
  • Set up the console;
  • Enable, set up, and modify the Salesforce Customer Portal;
  • Set up and schedule analytic snapshots to run;
  • Create communities for ideas and answers;
  • Create Visualforce email templates

Hi Mitchell,

This should be possible with Delegated Administration
