Runway User Roles - Collection options not available

For some reason, every time I create a new Runway install, I always need to run this on the db to make the collection options appear:

INSERT INTO `perch3_user_privileges` (`privKey`, `privTitle`, `privOrder`)
('content.collections.create', 'Create collections', 99),
('content.collections.delete', 'Delete collections', 99),
('content.collections.manage', 'Manage collections', 99),
('content.collections.options', 'Manage collection options', 99);

I have 7 Runway sites and I've had to do this to all of them, whether they were upgraded from Perch or started with Runway.

We're taking another look at this.

So is this the best way to make it work for now? I'm having same issues when I tried to give an 'Editor' role for collections. Is the 'privOrder' = 99 best?

Linda, this is what I've been doing per Drew's recommendation and I haven't run into any problems so far.

Thanks for the quick response. I added these to the DB and it's still not showing for an editor. Did you make any other changes? (They are showing in the table correctly.)

Do your other tables start with perch3_? If your site was upgraded from Perch 2 you may need to use perch2_

All tables start with perch3_ as it's a new install. It's strange it's not working, was hoping this would fix the issue.
