Rights to view and edit information within Aphex projects are controlled by each user's roles. All project users also have an Organisation role which may give them additional permissions to manage projects, users or analyse data but other than the Organisation Admin, all other users will require Project roles.
To see a project's users and their roles, head to the Users page from within a specific project. You can access your Project's Users from the Sidebar.
The roles available to users are;
In addition to the core project roles above, users can assign special permissions to facilitate sharing of control with other users. These special permissions are;
Each user can assign their manager as another project user. In additional to their core permissions, managers inherit the ability to update the Owner field of any tasks owned by their subordinates.
In practice, this allows Managers to reassign tasks from one subordinate to another or to themselves in order to edit them as owner.
Users temporarily taking leave or those needing to share ownership responsibilities with a back to back colleague can assign a Delegate. In addition to their core permissions, delegates inherit all the task editing permissions for tasks owned by the delegator.
Adding and Removing Users from a Project
Only project Editors and Administrators or Organisation Administrators can add users to a project. to add users, follow these steps
- Select Add User from the Users page
- Enter the user's email address
- Select the user (Users already active in the Organisation will appear in the name lookup) or enter their complete email address
- Select Send Invite
Only Project Administrators and Organisation administrators can remove users from projects. Users can be removed from the same Users page as above.
Removing a User from a project does not reassign any tasks owned by that user but it will remove the ability for any work to assigned to that user and will mean the user can no longer access the project. Project Administrators can select to reassign any work to other active users.
