Permissions for projects user is not member of

EP Help General > Settings > Roles > Permissions

 As their name suggests, these permissions apply to projects the user in question is NOT a member of. This way people who are not directly involved in project implementation can track project progress first-hand, as far as their permissions allow them to. For example, a Supervisor-role user can see how activities have been distributed among the project team, add some issues or requests, or delete those that he or she sees redundant, etc.


As any other permissions in Easy Projects, permissions of this type are accessible through User menu on the header menu.



Log in as a user with ‘Manage system settings ’ permission (e.g. Administrator-role one). If you are already logged in, skip this step.


From User menu select Roles from a drop-down menu.


To access permissions of this type, you can either click on the name of one of the existing roles, e.g. Administrator, or click the "Create a new role" button. Both will take you to Role Details screen. The Permissions for projects where user is NOT a member of section is on the right hand side, beneath the Global permissions.



IMPORTANT: Permissions of this type will not take effect unless the ‘Access all projects’ global permission is enabled in the user’s role, too. See Global permissions for more details.



IMPORTANT: Permissions to add, edit or delete items (see the table below) will not take effect unless the permission(s) to view respective items is enabled, too.

Head of department, with dozens of projects carried out a year, has not to be a member of any of those. However, to be able to supervise all or some of the projects he or she may have some ‘extra’-project permissions, e.g. viewing all activities (tasks, issues, and requests), project members and activity assignees, etc., in addition to some global permissions, such as ‘Access all projects’ or ‘Access common reports’. In this case the user’s role might have permissions as follows:
