Set up who can act as a delegate

In Microsoft Project Web App, there are user- or group-level permissions that enable you to determine which users or groups can act as delegates for other people. By default, the only group that has these permissions turned on is the administrators group. Therefore, if you want users in your organization to be able to act as delegates, you have to set the appropriate permissions.

To set permissions for a specific user:

  1. On the PWA home page, click Server Settings.

  2. In the Security section, click Manage Users.

  3. Click the name of the user for which you are setting permissions.

  4. On the Edit User page, expand the Global Permissions section.

  5. In the Global Permissions section, under Resource, choose the appropriate permissions for this user.

    • Can be Delegate    Select the Allow check box for this permission to enable this user to become a delegate for another user.

    • Manage My Delegations    Select the Allow check box for this permission to enable this user to create his or her own delegations.

    • Manage My Resource Delegations    Select the Allow check box for this permission to enable this user to set up delegations for other users.

  6. Click Save to save the permissions on the server.

To set permissions for a group:

  1. On the PWA home page, click Server Settings.

  2. In the Security section, click Manage Groups.

  3. Click the name of the group for which you are setting permissions.

  4. On the Add or Edit Group page, expand the Global Permissions section.

  5. In the Global Permissions section, under Resource, choose the appropriate permissions for this group.

    • Can be Delegate    Select the Allow check box for this permission to enable members of this group to become delegates for other users.

    • Manage My Delegations    Select the Allow check box for this permission to enable members of this group to create their own delegations.

    • Manage My Resource Delegations    Select the Allow check box for this permission to enable members of this group to set up delegations for other users.

  6. Click Save to save the permissions on the server.
