Add users to a project

Before a person can work on a project, you have to make him a member of the project.

You can make any registered user on your CollabNet TeamForge site a project member. You can assign roles to the user at the same time.
Note: Project members, roles and the associated permissions can be inherited via project hierarchy and reused in subprojects. If your project is a subproject of any other project, you may have inherited some roles, project members or user groups.
  1. Click PROJECT ADMIN from the Project Home menu.
  2. On the Project Admin menu, click User Membership.
  3. Click Add.
  4. On the Add User page, find the users you want by one of these methods:
    • Under Search for Users, filter the list of site users eligible to join this project. You can filter by full or partial name or user name.
      Note: Search text is not case-sensitive.
    • Browse the list of registered users on the site. Sort them by name, user name, email address or membership status.

      The inherited project members continue to hold the inherited roles with corresponding permissions, as specified in the source projects.

      Note: If a site has a great many users, you must filter them first to narrow down the list. This helps avoid slowing down the system.
  5. Select the users you want to add.
  6. Under Assign Roles, select the roles you want the users to have.
    Tip: If you prefer, you can skip this step and assign roles later on the Project Admin > Permissions page. Note that using the Assigned Project Members page, you can assign roles only to the direct project members.
  7. Save your changes.
    • Click Save to return to the Project Membership page.
    • Click Save and Add More to keep adding users.
