Project Owner RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    What setting would allow the project manager category to create a project on behalf of another project manager?

    I'm not talking about delegation, but rather a setting to apply to a category in order to make this function available to this category.

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Thank you,

  • Any Project Manager create a project & assign Owner to another PM while creating project first time. This is feature available in Project Online & Project Server 2016.

    Even in previous versions, create a project & then assign to another PM.

  • Hi Veera,

    When a PM tried to create a project on behalf of another PM the following error came up. This is using the same PM category as default.

    ID: 20010
     Error ID: 26000

    Detailed error below - send it to the administrator for more detailed

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-16"?>
    <errinfo> <general> <class name="Permission
    Denied"> <error id="20010"
    name="GeneralSecurityAccessDenied" uid="XXXX"
    /> </class> <class name="Queue"> <error
    id="26000" name="GeneralQueueJobFailed"
    MessageType="ProjectUpdateWithPCSMessage" MessageId="1"
    CorrelationUID="XXXXX" />
    </class> </general> </errinfo>

    You can do the following:

    1. Try troubleshooting using the error IDs, error XML.

    2. Contact administrator with your jobID (XXXXX)
    and error XML.

  • Resource should be Project Manager role to create a Project. And Project Manager Role should be able to create a Project.

    Adjust your security settings according to that.

  • Create a new category called "MyTeam".  

    In the "MyTeam", select the project name that you want to share.

    Assign the "MyTeam" to each of the project managers, and assign open and edit project to the
