Project Team - Enable Option to Add as Collaborator

    The Project Team is consisted of the resources you are assigning tasks to. When a Project Team record is created where the Role is defined for the resource, Inspire Planner automatically assigns Tasks with the same Role (for more information, please see Auto Assign Tasks to Project Team Members using Roles). 


    When adding Project Team members, you may also choose to automatically add them as collaborators on the Project. This will create a Project Collaborator record for the resource and will grant them either read-only or read/write access to the Project, depending on the collaborator permission level you specify.


    This help article walks you through how to enable this feature for Project Teams.



    Please note: You must be a Salesforce System Administrator to complete the steps outlined in this help article.
