Permission to open and use

My question:
I have a Macbook Pro with the M1 chip. I down loaded version 10.14.9, (desktop version 10.14.2). It says I need permission to do just about anything: start a new collection, view history ,etc. The Macbook is my personal laptop, I given the app all the permission I know of.
I want permission for everything, where/how do I do that?
