Limiting Plans editing in PWA 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All.

    Our goal is to limit access to new 2010 PWA editing feature; in my understanding the security policies related to opening/editing Plans are the same whenever I access Plans from Project Professional or PWA. Except of limiting the access to PWA Project schedule page (which is too strong in our case), I'm unable to find a security policy related to restricting Plans editing in PWA.

    Can you confirm/suggest any workaround?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Paolo

    There is no permission setting in Project Server 2010 that your Project Server administrator can use to prevent PMs from editing their projects in the Project Center in PWA.  Personally, the editing functionality in PWA is so limited that I cannot fathom why anyone with Microsoft Project 2010 would ever bother with the PWA interface for project editing.  Why don't you tell people that the editing capabilities in PWA are way less than the capabilities in Microsoft Project 2010, and just let it go at that?  Hope this helps.

  • Thank you very much, Dale.

    I agree with you on telling people about reduced edit capabilities in PWA but sometimes (a very large environment in this case) it may be useful to  restrict user interface to better control users behaviour and reduce uncertainty.

    Thanks again,

    Paolo
