NEW Feature: Roles and Permissions
We are determined to create a time tracking app that meets the needs of our users, making their workflows smoother and their work live easier. That is why we are constantly striving to improve timeghost by evaluating the feedback from our users.
Brings structure to your workspace
With the latest timeghost update, we are now adding role and permission functions that our users have often requested.
The new permissions are structured in two different layers:
The first level regulates who can create projects, clients or tags in the workspace and who can see the team activity. This is determined by the administrator.
The second level is within every project. This is where the roles for project managers and project members are distributed.
More adaptability to come
Another innovation is the creation of your own groups in the workspace. These groups can, for example, be added as a whole to a private project as project members. This extension of the feature is just now in development and will be added to timeghost in one of the next updates.
So, to summarize: by assigning roles and permissions, you can give timeghost another structural layer that helps you organizing your workspaces and projects and currently there are 4 different roles in timeghost:
- Regular User
- Project Member
- Project Manager
Below you can find a brief description of each of the four roles:
Initially, all users newly invited to a workspace are regular users.
A project member is a regular user who is added to a private project by the/an administrator or the project manager. The prerequisite for being able to be added is that he belongs to the team in the workspace.
A project manager is a regular user with extended permissions. The user who creates a project is always initially the project manager. It is possible to change this role afterwards or to equip other users with it as well.
Initially, the person who creates a workspace is always its administrator.
For more information about the different roles and how to set them up please have a look at our very detailed manual you can find here.
Building up on the roles and permissions feature you will see some extensions and other new features in the future that will help our users to adjust timeghost even more to their requirements and make it an integral part of their project planning and work hours tracking.
