Access Grant to bind resources to tasks

Hello,

 

i searching for the right access grant users can add resources to a specific task. If i log in as a PPM Administrator, i can add resources to a task of a project. But if i log in as the project manager of the related project, i only can add a user to a milestone but not a resource to a task. (see screenshots).

 

Do you know how to solve this problem?

 

Best Regards,

Sascha

Re: Access Grant to bind resources to tasks

Hi,

This is normal. This is not an issue related to access grants.

1. You cannot add resources to tasks because the PM is either not a manager of any Resource Pool, either he does not have any resource in the project staffing profile.

2. The second is actually a Summary Task, not a milestone. You can assign it to any user with Project Management license - this is the Summary Task Delegation feature.

Cheers
Alex

Hi Alex,

 

thanks for your response. So, i will explain what our organization want to use in the future.

 

<<The Project Managers should be able to add resources to their project tasks>>

 

If i understand correct, i have to do the following actions first:

 

1. Create a global resource pool (or user resource pool "global")

2. Add all project managers to the access of the resource pool

3. Give the Project Managers specific access grants (if necessary)

 

Best Regards,

Sascha
