When you create a new role or edit an existing one, the Role details screen is where you do it.
The screen has a number of sections, as shown in the illustration.
Permissions are central to any role. View them as a mechanism whereby a higher authority user, such as Project Manager, can give various access rights to lower authority project team members in line with the ‘role’ they are supposed to play in relation to the project they are (or are not) a member of.
Permissions are also a versatile tool, designed to help you ensure the right level of security as you manage your projects.
Enabling or disabling permissions is by selecting appropriate check boxes.
Use the 'Update' button in the 'Default permissions to be copied to a project' section to make the current set of permissions take immediate effect in all the projects you are currently a member of on. To apply the set to be effective only in projects created subsequently, use 'Save' or 'Save and Close' instead.
