Can status managers access each other's update details? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have a project with multiple status managers. Everything works well except for the Status Update History. Each status manager sees all of the approved updates in that list, regardless of who approved them - which is perfectly OK. However, if a status manager clicks the task name on an update that was approved by the other status manager, he gets "You do not have sufficient permissions to view the specified page."

    Is this expected behavior? Our status managers seem to feel they should be able to view each others' update details.

  • Hi WBC01,

    It is indeed the expected behavior. Evenif all status manager of a same project have obviously access to this project, consider that the approval history page is not data about the project but about the task update details which are information shared and exchanged between the resource and the status manager. Considering of course that the approval list of the project is accessible to all status managers.

    For example status manager B doesn't have to know that resource A submitted a task update to status manager B that rejected it once before finally approving it after resource A corrected the update. 

    Consider (and you could give this answer to your status managers) that the result of all the approval on the project will be reflected and accessible in the project plan.

    Hope this clarifies.
