Can I give only permission to the project manager to modify dates / make changes on the project?

I want to limit the permissions on the projects, for example, I want only the manager or whoever (that I decided) can make changes on the project (dates, % complete, resources, add/delete work items, etc.)

Hi Maria,

  There are two ways a user can view & modify a project/work item:

  1. "Super User" permission on the user profile which give the user access to view and modify any project/milestone/task/issue in the system regardless of role  (more on permissions here:
  2. The user's specific role(s) within a project:

In your case, you will want to set the Manager field for the work items to delegate control of the planned dates, work, resource assignment for the specific work item (and its children).

In addition, if you want to further limit permissions on projects, you can use validation rule for that.

We have an app that covers several permissions use case. One of them is "Prevent non PM from

updating work item dates" which may be relevant here.

You can read more, install on your account and later modify as needed:
