  • Hi, I am using Project Server 2007 and Microsoft Professional 2007. How do define a resource(s) as a status manager either at Project level or at Global level?

    Thanks, Jana

  • Hi Jana,

    Status Manager is at Task Level, you can have multiple status managers per project.

    Hope that helps

  • Thanks Paul for the Reply. I do understand that Status Manager is at Task level. But my question is how to define multiple status managers per project?

    By default it is giving my Name when I open a project in MS professional. It is not letting me select any other resource as Status Manager. Please advice.

     

    Thanks, Jana

  • Ahh ok,

    Only users that have opened the project plan and created a new task / assignment then saved/published the Project plan will appear in the list of status managers for that project.

    Thanks

  • one option you can use that, you can change the ownership of the project form one person form another, after that he can open the project make changes in Status Manager field.

    if you want the muliple status manager in single project, then individual user have Project Manager rights and he have permission to open the respective project.

    Afterwords he can change it on spacific assignment.
