Account and Project Level Permissions


There are two types of permissions in TeamGantt.

1) Project Level - This is the most common permission and is set every time someone is invited to a project. This enables the team to set different permissions for each user per project.

  • View Only - Users cannot make changes to the chart. However, they can upload files and comment on tasks.
  • Can Update Their Progress - Users cannot edit the chart except to update the % complete column of tasks that are assigned to them.
  • Edit - Users can update and edit the chart.
  • Admin - All of the above plus they can invite users, remove users, edit project settings, and delete the project.

When inviting users to a project, the default project level permission level is edit. To change project level permissions, the admin can open the project and click the People tab, then Add/Manage Users. 

From there, hover over the user’s name and a pop up edit option will appear. Click edit and then Done to change the permission.

Tip: This is also the place where a user can be removed from a project


2) Company (Account) Level - These permissions cover things such as being able to create projects, edit billing information, etc.

Account Holder: Account holders can add and remove users and resources from the account, adjust billing information and access invoices, create new projects, and view/access all projects within the account.

Advanced User: These users can create new projects. However, they cannot remove users/resources from the account. Advanced users can only access projects to which they are invited.

Basic User: Cannot create new projects or remove users and resources from the account. Basic users can only access projects to which they are invited.

Tip: To edit company level permissions, the account holder can log in and go to Admin > Account Settings > Manage Users.
