Creating project team

How to invite a new user to a project?

You can invite a new user right on the new project creation page. In order to do this, in the «Project participants» section on the project creation page, click «Add to Company».



In the opened window:



choose a project1, enter the email address, name, and last name of the participant (-s)2 (if you wish, you can add several emails separated by the commas or import contact database of your employees in the CSV or vCard format)3. Choose the company and department (in this case — create a new one). Click «Invite users to the project».

If users are already in the system, just mark the checkboxes next to their names and click «Create project».



Also, you can invite a person to the current project using the «Team» section, or when creating any task, or in the block of participants in an already existent task with the help of a special icon.

Please, note! The option of adding a participant to the project can only be done by a project manager, an administrator with the participants management rights, or an administrator with the project management control rights.

How to invite a client to an account?

To limit the client’s access to «behind the scenes» of the company (for example, hide time and monetary costs of tasks), it is best to create a separate client group and invite your client there.

You can do this at the stage of creating a new project as well as when sending an invitation to the client to an existing project.

In order to invite a client at the stage of creating a new project, in the «Project Participants» section, choose «Add company»1. Specify the type of company to be added (in this case — Client) 2, enter the name3 and click «ОК». In the field of the client’s company name, click «Add company» icon, enter your information and click «Invite user (s) to the project».

To invite a client to an existing project, jump to People and then click «Invite».

Fill out the required fields and select the project into which you want to invite a client, enter your company, department (optional), and click «Invite to the project».


Creating the team project. Roles of users and a company

For each project, it is necessary to form a team. The project can be an «inside» one, and then its team will consist only of employees of your company. It can also be «the client’s» one, which allows the client to be present in the project. In this case, the client is best to be added as a separate company.
The structure of the «inside» project’s participants may look like this:



If you create a project with a client or subcontractor, the project structure might look like this:



In this case, when you create a project, you need to create a client’s company or a subcontractor’s company, and invite participants in there. You can do this directly on the stage of the project creation or in the People section.
If these companies were created previously and their users are already in the system, just check their names in the checkbox to «add» them to the project team.
The following roles are possible in the project:

  • Administrator is a role with customizable access to users, projects, tasks, hidden information, reports, and timers. It may be an «account administrator» or «company administrator» or «department administrator»
    Project Manager is a person responsible for the outcome of the project. Project Manager has extended permission in the project and may change the terms and closing tasks. This can be whether a regular user or an administrator.
    Regular users are people who see all the usual (not «private») project tasks to which they are included.
    A member of the client’s company is the person taking the job. This person does not see the «inside» of the account.
    Guest is a person with the guest access only to the task for which he or she is responsible.

A more detailed description of roles can be found here.
