Customisation of UserRoles
so far im very happy with your tool. but 1 think im reallyx missing is the function to set individual role permissions. just a simlpe checkbox list which role is able to use which function. your predefined roles are not bad, but for several use cases i would like to have the option to define my own user roles with own rights. cazse right now setting up this project this can be a show-stopper for me :(
Makes sense – thank you.
Let’s see now what other people think about it.
Hi! I'd love an ability to set permission so certain users can only see issues assigned to them. It's also very critical to us.
Trying out Freedcamp and definitely thinking of getting a paid plan. I love how much it has improved from when I first tried it out a few years ago for a small group that really needed a free project management tool.
Thank you in advance!
Critical: need to assign users to their tasks only - not see other project tasks. For my vendors and freelancers. Showstopper for me...
This is probably the most critical function that is missing from our team's perspective. We want to allow users to participate in discussions without having the ability to upload files. They can include a link to a file if they choose if they use something like Dropbox, but we do not want their files mixed in with the other files that are designated by our teams.
Part of the reason we switched over from Basecamp is because of how much "stuff" was added by users that make searching for what you need a pain in the you-know-what!!
More granular user roles would be a terrific addition to the software...Personally, I would love to be able to create a customized role with very specific permissions that I can assign to users as they're created.
I think this is required. User on one side and roles on other side (with tick boxes) will help in organizations choosing which user needs to have access to what information. This may be relevant for organizations following segregation of duties due to internal control standards.
I agree. I have to be able to add users that can only observe and take no actions on tasks. The "Guest" role is not really a guest in my opinion if this role can create and delete tasks etc.
This is pretty essential actually. So YES PLEASE.

I don't see where I personally would use custom roles, but a role which (as far as tasks go) could only modify Subtasks would be great!

That role will be 'Commenter'. Readers are clearly read only people - no traces of their modification should exist - to me.
It would be very usefull to be able to set privileges like Adrian asked.
In a shortime, I would be glad if I could set some users just like "readers" (with only comment ability)

I'd be very happy if someone would develop this! A feature like that would be very usefull!
I agree - It would be great to have an Admin role that administers managers/users/viewers for the company.
I think having an admin assign users to a generic freedcamp like "Company ABC" or "Class 123" with an admin (or teacher) being able to add users, administer groups, reassign managers, delete users etc. would be great.
thanks for that fast response!
in general it would be nice set privileges to seperates roles, but for the beginning i would fine with a role which is able to have regular access to the discussion functions and the ability to add and complete subtask (also able to see all tasks) and nothing else related to the task system.
so in general:
discussion - all rights(as usual)
calendar - view / add / edit
tasks - view all tasks / add&edit subtasks / complete subtasks
have a nice weekend & best regards :)
