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.


    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.


     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.

  • Hello Matthew,

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