Managing Users

OK, "double-checking" is over. Now, you're doing "new stuff." To enable people to use Project Web Access, you need to add users. From the Users page, the administrator can add, modify, or delete users. In addition, the administrator can merge two user names into one account if a user appears twice in the Log On list under two different names. Display this page by clicking the Manage users and groups link in the Actions pane on the Admin tab. Then, click the Users link in the Actions pane.

When you add or modify a user, at the top of the page (see Figure 19-19), you specify the type of authentication to use (Windows Authentication or Project Server authentication), the user's e-mail address, and the groups to which the user belongs.

Figure 19-19: At the top of the page, supply basic user identification information.

Scroll down the page (see Figure 19-20), and you can specify the categories of information that the user can access as well as category permissions. You can use templates to apply category permissions, even though you can't see the list of templates in this figure.

Scroll down farther (see Figure 19-21), and you can specify the global permissions for the user — and again use a template to model the permissions on the permissions of a Project Server group.
