Control access by project type

Projects can be open only to project members, open to everyone in the world, or something in between.

By default, all new projects are created as private projects, accessible only to project members. Your system administrator can change the default access level for new projects.
Important: Users who do not have access to a project cannot see it on the Home page, in the All Projects list, or in search or reporting results.
  1. Click PROJECT ADMIN from the Project Home menu.
  2. On the Project Admin Menu, click Permissions, then click the DEFAULT ACCESS PERMISSIONS tab to see the project's current access setting.
  3. Click Edit.
  4. On the Edit Default Access Permissions page, select the kind of access you want to allow to your project.
    • Private - Project members only.
    • Gated community - Project members and unrestricted users.
    • Public - All users.
    Note: If the option is not available, your system administrator has prohibited changing the access levels of projects on the site.
