How to prevent inherited permissions !!!!!


Level 4

We have certain projects that need to be limited to only the users involved on the project. My problem is the projects are inheriting the permissions from the Portfolio. How do I prevent this? The projects need to stay within their respective portfolios, but the permissions should not match the Portfolio permissions. I thought I had this figured out, but now it's reverted to inheriting again. 😫

Do you create your projects from Templates? I like to manage permissions at the template level under Access.

Hi @Kellie Gardner‚ - thank you for your response.

By checking zero boxes under Access on the templates, I was able to get this to work previously. However, since the latest release, this is no longer working. I have a ticket into support now - I'm hoping it's just a bug that can be fixed.

Thanks again!

That does seem strange. I'll have to run some testing to see if it happens in our instance and I'm just not aware of it. I'd love to hear if there is a resolution to the problem from Workfront.
