    I am using Project Online 2013.

    I am facing a really weird situationas none of my Team Members are able to access respective Project Sites. Even to raise issue and risk it not happening.

    What could be the issue??

  • Do you have any error messages?  Are the team members on the project team with assignments?

  • Hi Ben

    Thank you for your response.

    Yes the team members have assignments on the project. I am attaching the error screenshot as well. It says 'You need permission to access this site.'

    Team Member Project Site Access Error

    We are seeing a behavior that in Project Site Members Group, no one is getting populated, when the team build is done and project is published. We even tried to sync the project site from 'Connected SharePoint Sites' in PWA, without success.

    In Project Site, PWA Team Members (Synchronized) Group, all the team members are there. But not able to understand that why Team Members are not able to access the site

    Your help is appreciated!!

    Thanks

  • Hi Manish, please confirm the permissions mode for your PO instance.  Is this one, some or all of your project sites?  Presumably as administrator you can access them

  • Hi Manish,

    Your team members might not have the access to the site collection (which means- base site).

    First check the users are having the site collection access or not. 

    if not ask the site admin to provide the access to your team members.

  • Hi Ben

    My PO instance is configured with Project Server Security. and yes this problem is for all of the project sites for all of the users.

    As an administrator, I am able to access all Project Sites.

    Your help is appreciated!!

    Thanks

  • Hi sasisprite--

    Yes it seems my Team Members are not having proper access rights.

    How can I check, if users are having the site collection access or not??

    Please note that I am using Project Online Instance.

    Thanks

  • Hi Manish,

    Please check that Enable Project Site Sync is checked.

  • Hi Ben

    Yes, this small check box was the issue.

    Checking it on and republishing the projects, helped me.

    Now every team member is able to access the Project site.

    For any Team Member to access Project Site, by default, the following three things should be done:

    1. PWA security mode should be Project Server Mode.

    2. A Task has been assigned to the Team Member.

    3. Enable Project Site Sync checkbox is selected.

    And the Team will be able to access the Project Site.

    Thanks very much Ben.

    Thanks!!!

  • Hi Manish, glad it worked. In truth if a team member is assigned to the project, then they will have READ access to the project site, if they have an assignment to a task (as you say) they will have read/write access to the project site. Additionally, any member of the Portfolio Views also has read access, and Portfolio Managers has write access...

    HTH,  Ben.

  • Timely topic - I just submitted a similar item for discussion.

    I have tested non-PWA users with a SharePoint Online license able to access team sites in our instance. My Project Site Sync is 'On' but team member groups do not synch until I add a resource to the project. Then, it wipes out my 'invites' and 'shares' and replaces with Synched users.
