  • Question

  • hello forum members,

    we need to create another group based on Project Managers group but the group should not have rights to add resources to tasks. Can you please suggest what rights to take away: new task assignment, reassign task, build team?

    thanks

  • Hi,

    You will have to take away(Deny) the following permissions too

    In Security Categories deny the following:

    1) Build Team on Project

    2) Create New Task or Assignment

    3) Assign Resources

    In Global Permissions

    1) New Task Assignment

    2) Reassign Task

    3) Build Team on New Project

    You should be able to get the desired results with any new projects that will be created for the projects which are already created the user may be able to assign resources.

  • Hi,

    You can achieve this by removing the "Assign Resources" category permission from the another group for Project Managers that you need to create. 

    I would suggest you to go through the the details and definations of category permissions provided in  https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc197622.aspx , in order to understand the dependencies of one permission over another.

  • hi Atul,

    if I remove "Assign Resources' category permission, the users are no longer able to add resources to team, but they are still able to add existing resources to tasks. Is there a way to prevent users from adding existing resources to tasks?
