Manage my alerts and reminders not showing in personal settings in project server 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I as an administrator can see the Manage my alerts and reminders in personal setting in the server setting page. Other than administrators, no body else can view this option. For example, a user who is assigned to the team members group with the My task category cannot see this in his personal settings on the server settings page. I have done the following security settings - 

    In the team members group, added this user 

    Added the My Task as the selected category in the team member group

    In global permissions, have checked manage my notification and reminders, manage personal notification (basically set the permission with the team member template and selected the additional manage my notification option).

    In the category settings for my tasks, I have added this user as the selected resource, added the group "team members" in the permissions sections.

    With all these settings, the user is unable to see the manage my alerts and reminders in the personal settings!! What am I missing!!!!?!??!

  • Hi,

    Since nobody jumped in, I'll give a try.

    Following this reference, you have to set 3 permissions :

    • Manage Notification and Reminders: Enables a user to manage the Alerts and Reminders settings in Project Web App Server Settings.
    • Manage Personal Notifications:  Enables a user to access the Manage My Alerts and Reminders link in the Personal Settings section of the Project Web App navigation column.
    • Manage Resource Notifications: Enables a user to access the Manage My Resources’ Alerts and Reminders link in the Personal Settings section of the Project Web App navigation column.

    As far as I understand from your post, the last one is missing. Try to add this global permission to the team member group and see if it works.


    Hope this helps,

  • @ Guillaume -  I guess he is referring to 
    • Manage Personal Notifications:  Enables a user to access the Manage My Alerts and Reminders link in the Personal Settings section of the Project Web App navigation column.

    @nkaundinya -  As work around you can add short cut using edit links options and choose new links and add "http://webapplicationname/PWAname/_layouts/15/pwa/Notification/Self_Notification.aspx" say. if your PWA is http://abc.xyz.com/pwa then add http://abc.xyz.com/PWA/_layouts/15/pwa/Notification/Self_Notification.aspx 

    Thanks,

  • Thanks Guillaume and Mustaq,

    Neither solution worked! When i add the link and act as a delegate for the user and click on the link, it says the user does not have sufficient previlages to access this page!!

  • nkaundinya,

    Are you always checking this setting as a "Delegate" or did you actually have the user check the settings?

    As a delegate, you CANNOT see/set somebody else's personal notifications. This is the same behavior in 2010 as well. This is by design.

    However, the user themselves should be able to see and access the link.

  • Nikhil - I provided an answer in the Linked In forums, I am posting it here for those who do not use LinkedIn.

    Have you looked at creating a link to the "My Alerts" avaialble from the "My Settings" page accesible from the drop down list displayed in the top right hand corner in PWA when a person clicks on their displayed name? I Created a new Quick Launch item linking to this URL - http://servername/PWA/_layouts/15/mysubs.aspx and it works for me.

    You will also probably find that the delegation error you encountered was due to the fact that the person you were acting on behalf of belongs to a group where the Admin permission "Manage Notifications and Reminders" is not allowed - as this is an Administrator permission within Global Permissions it is likely most users will not be allowed to do this. This blog provides some useful comments against the sometimes opaque explanations provided in Microsoft documentation.

  • Dominc,

    The delegation "error" is not really an error. It is by design. Even as an Admin, you will not be able to see/set somebody else's Personal Notifications. This was the same behavior in 2010 as well.

  • Prasana,

    Thanks for the clarification - there are some features that Delegation does not address and I guess this is one more to be aware of.

  • It takes most of the Administrator,  when they do not see the notifications.  Yes its by design and its users personal settings not visible even through deligation.
