Can Delegate and Delegator both Edit Projects in PWA at same time? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to find the easiest solve to have the Owner of a project, and another team member they work with BOTH be able to update Project Details (enterprise data custom fields), while also letting someone else. I don't want to create new security groups if possible, but if I help them set up the 2nd team member as a Delegate, can the original owner still edit as well?

  • Hi,

    By definition of the check-in/check-out feature, a project cannot be edited by 2 users at the same time. That being said, even if I didn't tested it, it should be possible to use the delegation for 2 users to edit custom fields in PDP. But I wouldn't adviec to do so because you won't be able to track who did what and it could quickly become a mess. Note also that the delegation won't work in MS Project.

    See below more details about delegation:
