Weekly Dynamic: Project Accounting Access List

Project Accounting provides an option to control access to projects using the Access List on the Project Maintenance Card.

Most of the consultants I know who use Project Accounting aren’t fans of controlling access to projects this way because it’s a  maintenance nightmare. I did however want to cover one aspect of this.

Rather than adding access one user at a time, select the Icon next to the Project Number on the Employee Access List to open a wizard to allow adding employees in bulk, like from a class.


The problem with the wizard is that it only adds the employees to the list. It doesn’t add the class so adding and subtracting employees to the class later doesn’t change the access list. Also, you can’t tell that employees were added from a class if you are trying to maintain the list based on classes.
