You will also perform some data management functions, such as checking in projects and resources, and deleting project tasks , status reports , resources, and projects from the database if needed.
Users, Groups, and Permissions
Users are set up in Project Web Access to establish their authorization into Project Web Access. Their usernames and other access information are established to help in the authorization. This is different than establishing them as resources for projects. That is done via the resource pool in Project Professional. Each user is then assigned to a group, such as project manager or administrator (although each user is assigned to the default group of team member).
Each of the groups established for the organization has permissions assigned to them. For instance, the project manager group permissions may be set so that project managers may view only their own projects in Project Center, but not others. At the same time, they may not be allowed to see Portfolio Analysis reporting or use the function called "delegate tasks." Each group, also, may be associated with a category which defines what set of data they may be able to view. For instance, the My Projects category may be set to allow project managers to view only the projects they own or are assigned to, or may be set to allow them to see all projects in the organization.
For detailed information about users, groups, categories, and security via permissions, see "Customizing and Administering Microsoft Project Server" on the CD accompanying this book.
