Project permission levels


There are 3 project permission levels: Admin, Member, and Follower. 


They have full access and control of the project. They are also the only people that can mark tasks as verified.


They can do most of the things as Admins, except they cannot add or delete plans, they cannot invite new users without Admin approval, and they cannot delete tasks that have content. They also can only mark tasks as completed, not verified. 



They can only see tasks currently or previously assigned to them. They can create tasks, but they cannot edit, add or delete plans, tasks, categories, users or generate reports. They also cannot add markups, hyperlinks, or attachments.


Note: You may have multiple Admins on a project. Depending on how you prefer to manage your team, you can make everyone an Admin if you like (only a current Admin can grant this permission to another user). However, most folks prefer to set their PMs and Supers as project Admins, and most other users as Members.  

Tip: For more information on user permissions, check out our FAQ article.

Clicking on the 'Export users' button will result in a CSV report being sent to the email associated with your account.
