Remove Edit project permissions but keep Edit task permissions (Gen 3)

  • Not Planned
We are trying to restrict users so they cannot create new projects, but still require them to edit the sub tasks within their projects.
In the Admin Permission Sets, the tick boxes do not allow the Edit Tasks box to be ticked unless the Edit Projects box is ticked. (Same issue for Editing Team members)
Is there a reason that these items are linked? Or can they be unlinked?
Thanks

Hi Ben,

Thank you for using Replicon community,

Currently, it is not possible to unlink this association, I am marking this as an idea and are reviewing the same. 

Thanks,
Lingaraj

Hi!

We would also like to restrict users from creating projects but still be able to edit them and create tasks.

One more on this!

Thanks,
Nuno

Hi Ben and Nuno,

This is something we've looked at in the past but just haven't had a chance to do. It's not currently planned, but hopefully we will hear from some other customers and can get it bumped up the priority list.

Thanks,
Charlene

I think it's very necessary to add the feature of restricting users from editing projects while they still can edit tasks. Our project names and codes are synchronized with our accounting system and if users accidentally change these names or codes, the integration that posts these to our general ledger will be broken.

Hi,

We've got the same sync in place and that kind of feature would help us greatly.

We are looking for a way to allow editing of a project (adding a task or user) but not allowing the user to create the project.  There are too many chances to make a mistake in creating a new project by a person who does not do it regularly.  Can we have a permission that will allow edit but not add?

Hi JJ,

Thanks for adding your input. We still have this on the list to do, but unfortunately no firm timeline right now.

Thanks,
Charlene

We are also looking for this same functionality.  We will be utilizing tasks as our workplan. We want our end users to be able to edit/close out tasks, but without the ability to edit/delete projects.  This poses a huge risk if our end users have the ability to edit or archive/delete a project. We would want the Project Info as view only also. How many requests for the same functionality are necessary before development makes it a priority or at least bumps it up the to do list?

Hi Jason,

Thanks for providing details on why this is needed. I agree that we have had many requests for this. We've been working hard on new functionality and other customer commitments so it has made it hard to fit in items like this. I'll raise this with the team again and see if there's any options for moving this up the list.

Thanks,
Charlene

Hi Jason,

I raised this issue with the product management team again. I don't think we'll be able to get to this in the short term due to other priorities, but it is on our radar for the medium term. Stay tuned for updates in future!

Thanks,
Charlene

Hi Jason,

We will have our Product Management team provide further inputs on the same.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Restrict New Project Setup to Admin Only.

As the Admin for a new Replicon implementation, it concerns me that Project Managers are able to set up their own projects.  The reason for this is that there are several related issues to setting up billable projects in particular: Set up of corresponding project in the accounting system, Contract compliance, and the overall lack of administrative oversight of new projects.

Is there a way to allow Project Managers to edit various elements of their projects (Eg. new team members, tasks, etc.), but without the ability to set up projects themselves?

Hi Alan,

Thank you for using the Replicon Community!

This is something our team is already aware of and are working towards it.

Hey Aashnee,

We need the same functionality as well. The system has been inefficient without having this feature.

One project having 800-900 tasks and need to be monitored at task level by the project leader is too much. Alternately, we can have option to have co-leader.

I am very eager to see this update.

I have posted new conversation as in first place could find something similar. But good to know that I am not the only one.

However, we are on Gen 2 yet.

Thanks,
Jayshree

Is there any progress on this request?  We also need the ability to have project managers edit projects (tasks, team members, etc) without the ability to add new projects.  This is critical functionality for us from a data risk management standpoint.

My company would love the ability to edit the permission levels for project managers,
internally we have a PMO function who are required to run the process of new projects, we cannot alter the project managers permissions to still allow them to edit tasks and resource etc,

It would be really valuable to us, in terms of compliance, if this feature was added.
