Other users need access[Editing permission] to My Projects RRS feed

  • Question

  • How to make it possible in Project Server 2013 that, A project created by one user can be edited by multiple users. ie., Multiple Managers for the same Project ?

    By default, users  added as resources to the project or who have tasks in the project have limited access to it (especially to the Project they have only read permission).

    So how to change permissions for a project so that, other users can read, write and publish the project and tasks associated with that project ?

    I dont want to click each project and add a different permission to it, as given as a solution in various threads. Instead I have a set of Managers, who must be allowed to access all the projects created in that PWA automatically. Is there any solution for this ?

    Thanks,

    shanky

    if you have a a set of Managers, you can either add them to group "Portfolio Managers". This group should have all required permissions by default. Or you create a new group and add category "My Organization" and set group/category permissions and Global Permissions as needed. Category "My Organization" does include all projects.

    Does that help or do you need some more details?

  • Hello Barbara,

    As per the guidelines given by you , I tried giving adding set of users to Portfolio Managers. Also I created a new group and added My Organization to it and set all available permissions. But still it is not allowing these users to edit the projects. It just allows these users to view the projects and tasks , but not to edit them. Only the person who has created is able to edit the project and tasks.

    Thanks,

    shanky

  • Sorry Barbara,

    The Project was checked out, hence the Portfolio manager was unable to edit the project.

    Now it is perfectly working after checking in the project.

    Thanks a tonne for this help. It means a lot to me :)
