Permissions for Publishing a Schedule RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, I am new to SharePoint Project Server 2013 SP1 Enterprise Edition.  I am the SharePoint Administrator and we are using Project Server and I am trying to understand the permissions for allowing people to update and publish a schedule in the web browser.

    We have a structure of the main PWA site, then a subsite for the master file, then subsites for the projects.

    https://domainname/pwa/masterfile/subprojects

    My Project Manager has Microsoft Office Project Professional 2013 and he has connected and upload the master file and subprojects or projects as subsites, or enterprise files.

    I am testing, going in as a regular user and trying to figure out what user permissions / SharePoint Groups I will need to have users added to, in order for them to publish / update a schedule.

    In Project Server, the graphic below shows that I am in the Schedule and I want to change the date and or update the text.  I do not know what permissions I need to allow the Edit / Publish buttons to be available.

     

     

     

    I notice that I am on the /PWA/ root site collection, site when it wants me to update the project.

    https://DOMAINName/PWA/Project%20Detail%20Pages/Schedule.aspx?projuid=025db2f1-5f69-e611-016c-5c260u81cf54&ret=1

     I have tried to add myself to the administrators for PWA (wow, sure that works, but I can't add people to that).  I am not sure what else I need.  Should I put in the subsite members group or full control?  When the subsites / projects are created from Microsoft Project Professional 2013, in SharePoint / Project Server 2013 Enterprise Edition SP1, it creates three groups, Projectname Owners / Members / Visitors.

    These are the permissions on /PWA that I am a member of:

    Thank you.

    Matt

  • Hello Matthew,

    You can add Project Manager to Project Managers Group on your PWA site collection (which is top site collection /PWA)
