  • Hi,

    there are several possiblities to restrict updates for tasks or projects.

    • Tasks: use project detail page "Schedule", view "Close task to Update" and set "Close" to yes
    • Project: set booking type in Team Builder to proposed to hide a project completely

    To restrict only an assignment for a task, I can only think of one solution: set assignment owner to a different name. I have created a resource without login. I added this resource to project team. In task information dialog (double click on task to open dialog), I changed assignment owner to this name.

    After doing so, PROD MGR is still able to see task in /tasks.aspx to enter status, but I won't, since my assignemnt would be listed für resource HiddenResource - but this resource does not exist in reality, so nothing will happen.

    Does that help?
