Project Site access RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I'm trying to create a process to hand-off a product for production support upon completing a project.  Can anyone assist by advising how to give users access to the project site without making them members of the project team?  Is there a best practice available?

  • Best way which suits your requirement would be:

    1. Create a Group in AD called for Post Productions Support for the particular product ex: Product1SupportTeam. If you already have any such group which is created for some other purpose by the Support Team then use that group

    2. Give this group Read/Write whatever permissions you want to give at site level by going to Site Settings

    3. Whenever Members join or leave Support Team, keep them adding removing these users from that group without the inter mediation of a Project Server Administrator. Help desk/AD team can take care of that

    Hope this suits your need.

  • You can directly give that user permission to the Project site.

    Go to the Project site

    Click on site actions -> site permissions

    Click Grant permissions and then enter the username of the person you want to give permissions.

  • Hi there,

    If automatically synchronising the Project site permissions users get added to project sites as per below:

    Otherwise the option is to disable the automatic synchronisation and manually add users the project sites.

    Thanks

  • Thank you, all for your answers.  I think the answer from Abhijeet would work best in our environment.

    Thanks, again.
