  • Hi Gary

    The global permission for this states "Allows users to edit items within lists in Project Web App project sites".  I assume that this means if you allow this permission, then for whatever project site the user has permission to access, they should be able to create new items and edit existing items in all lists and libraries within the project sites.  

    However, when I grant this permission to a user, he only gets 'Reader' access to all the lists/libraries.  Am I missing something?

  • Hi Peter

    The permission "Contribute to Project Web App" relates to PWA. It is not well described and the description in the Microsoft documentation, which mentions Windows SharePoint Project Site, is misleading.

    It has nothing to do with the project site, and is all about PWA. If that permission is checked then the user can edit lists and create lists in PWA.

    A user will be able to edit lists in a project site if he is part of that project's team. If he is part of the team and unable to edit lists you need to check the other groups he is a member of. He may be part of a group that through a category lets him see the project, but the group prevents him from actually editing it.

    Good luck

  • Ryan is 100% correct here.  Had a customer who had various roles that were able to edit the main pages of Project Web App in a Project Online setting.  After testing it all came down to this permission being enabled on a few of the security groups (Project Permission mode).
