Why my Essential Licensed Users can edit Project Schedule? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 

    I don't know what has done wrong with Project Online setting in my organization. At first it did not happen, but after some settings performed, our Essential Licensed Users (who are supposed to represent project Team Members for updating their assignment progress) can edit the project schedule - like PM can do. 

    Can anyone please guide what can we do to disable this ability to edit the schedule by these Essential Users? 

    Thank you!

  • Hi Mint,

    You have to differenciate licences and user profiles. A licence (Essentials, Professional or Premium) is a monthly subscription. But there is no technical limitation or constraint versus the application feature. Note that you'll be violating th emicrosoft licensing agreement in case a user with a PO Essentials licence has a project manager role.

    What the user can do in Project Online is not triggered by the licence, but by the profile (meaning permissions) you assign to the user. In your case, assuming you're using the Project Server permission mode, you need to add the given user in the team member default group.

    Consequently, once you assign a licence to the user, you need to assign a role/profile to the user from the PWA server settings. 

    Please for more details about the security model if needed.


    Hope this helps,
