The last thing you can do is to apply roles and permissions of another user. When "Apply roles and permissions from user" option is selected when creating a new user or editing an existing one, please note that this does not apply to roles and permissions acquired via group membership(s) but solely to the personal roles and permissions of the particular user. Group membership(s) and related group roles and permissions cannot be copied from one user to another.

In the drop-down list, you will choose the user you want to apply for roles and permissions from.

I, for example, choose the user Alena, who is consultant/support.

When you look to projects of this new user you can see that this user has been added to projects and assigned a role in each project, so you don´t have to do this manually.

Note: The following login screen only appears in demo versions. In full versions, you are always requested to enter username and password of your user account.

Corner situations

  • When "Apply roles and permissions from user" option is selected when creating a new user or editing an existing one, please note that this does not apply to roles and permissions acquired via group membership(s) but solely to the personal roles and permissions of the particular user. Group membership(s) and related group roles and permissions cannot be copied from one user to another.
  • Hours format setting on the user's profile does not apply to Timesheets as they always use the short format in order to avoid text overlapping with the long format.
