One of the most unique things about Ganttic’s resource planner is the data fields. However, depending on your planning needs, there might be a number of reasons why you’d want to hide specific data from certain users. With our recent update, it’s super easy to control exactly what your team can see, edit, or not see in terms of custom data fields.
Read on to learn more about Data Field Rights. And how you can customize permissions as you see fit.
For many of our users, custom data fields are a planning must. With them, users can add all kinds of necessary information regarding their projects, tasks, and resources. Data fields come in handy since they greatly expand the amount and types of data you can add to your Gantt chart. But they also keep things organized.
You’re probably aware that you can filter and group via your data fields. These options make it easier to plan around specific resources. Ensuring that you’re always choosing the right resource for the task at hand.
But what happens when your data fields contain sensitive information? Or perhaps you’re working with a lot of data fields, some of which aren’t relevant to certain users. Alternatively, maybe you want your users to have more control over their own resource data fields.
Well, that’s where Data Field Rights come in.
Under User Settings you’ll find a new category of permissions called “Data Field Rights.” This allows admins to control what exactly other individual users can read, edit, or not see regarding all of your planner’s Task, Resource, and Project Data Fields.
For all users, the default Data Field setting is “Edit.” Meaning all users can potentially change any of your available data fields. And if you’re happy with that, then there’s nothing you need to do!
But now, if a user has the ability to see or edit certain projects, resources, or tasks, then admins have the ability to control the accompanying custom data fields.
Not only does this option now give admins further control over their Gantt planners, but there are a few specific use cases that Data Fields Rights can help you solve.
We at Ganttic don’t really like to tell our users how to use their planners. So don’t let these limit your imagination. Or if you have your own unique scenario you’d like to share, we’re happy to hear it. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know!
