"Team Members for Project Web App" cant see the "Track Your Work" Web Part in Project Online RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

    My organization is new to using Project Online and we are encountering an issue with the "Track Your Work Web Part". Whenever we add a user to Project Online, using Active Directory, the user is automatically added to the "Team Member for Project Web App" group. While this initial behavior is desired, we have discovered that having the user only in the Team Members group prevents them from viewing the "Track Your Work Web Part". As of today we are adding the users to the Project Managers group to resolve this, but this is not a feasible solution moving forward.My questions are:

    1. What permissions are required in order to view the "Track Your Work" web part?
    2. If I add the "Team Members for Project Web App" group to the web parts audience will this resolve the issue?
    3. Does each OOB web part have different permissions requirements?

    We are currently setup to use SharePoint permissions mode, although we are considering switching to Project permissions mode.

    Thank You,

    Eugene Bethel

  • Hello,

    The "Team Members for Project Web App" group access is fine for accessing that web part  - works fine on my tenant. If you add a user manually / directly to the PWA site via the "Team Members for Project Web App" group, does it work for them? Is it only users that are added via the AD sync?

  • Hello Paul,

    Thank you for responding so quickly!!! To answer your questions:

    1. I have not tried to add a user directly to PWA via the "Team Members for Project Web App"
    2. The best answer to this question is "Yes" since all users are added via AD sync.

    I will test adding a user directly to PWA site via the "Team Members for Project Web App" group to see if that makes a difference.

  • Hi Paul,

     I have tested adding a user directly to the "Team Members For Project web App" group manually and that is working. Based on this I can only surmise that the current group synchronization model needs configuring. I will need to get the permissions to perform this configuration in order to sort this out.

    Thank You Paul!!! Great Help!!!
