  • Hi,

    What is the use of the "Project Permission" button in PWA 2010? (Project tab, group "Navigate").

    What is the data that should be displayed here?

    Thanks

  • This button is used to assign permissions on a specific project to users or groups

    Let me give you an example of why you might need to use the Project Permissions button.  Your organization uses the default security settings in Project Server 2010, which means that each project manager can see/open/save/publish his or her own projects.  No project manager can see any other project manager's project.  You are going on vacation for two weeks, and in your absence, Mickey Cobb will be managing your project for you.  How can Mickey manage your project if she is not even able to see it, let alone to open it and edit it?  Answer:  grant her temporary permissions to open, edit, save, and publish your project using the Project Permissions button in Project Professional 2010 or in PWA.  When you grant her special permissions, she can now manage your project in your absence.  The only other thing she made need to do is to change herself to the Status Manager on every task, but the key is to use the Project Permissions feature to allow her to see and open your project.  When you return from vacation, you can revoke her special permissions as well.

    This is a really powerful feature that I really like.  Hope this helps.
