Hide PDP for specific groups RRS feed

Answers

  • Hi,

    when you are referring to "custom groups", I assume that you are thinking of Project Server groups, using Project Server permission mode?

    Unfortunately, this way will only work with SharePoint groups. There are only SharePoint groups available for default Project Server groups (Team Members, Project Managers, …) Any additional Project Server group will not have a corresponding SharePoint group. Ich you want to restrict users from accessing a PDP, you will have to create SharePoint groups to use them and keep them manually in sync with your custom Project Server groups.

    Sorry!
    Barbara

  • Barbara is 100% right as usual., however you can hide webparts on a PDP by using the standard SharePoint Audiences feature - and for this you do use SharePoint groups.   The Audiences feature is well documented so best to just search for it.
