Microsoft Project Server 2010 default categories

 

Applies to: Project Server 2010

Topic Last Modified: 2011-02-25

Microsoft Project Server 2010 creates seven default categories during installation. Each of the categories is configured to be accessed by specified default user groups. Each category has a predefined set of category permissions for default user groups that have access to that category. The following sections list the default settings for each category for Project Server 2010.

In this article:

Specific default groups are already associated with each of the default categories, The following table shows the default categories and the default groups that can access each of them.

noteNote
For more information about the relationship between groups and categories, see Plan groups, categories, and RBS in Project Server 2010.

The following table describes the default category permissions for each default group. For example, a user in the default Administrators group (who is associated to the My Organization category by default) has the permissions allowed in the Administrators column in the table. These category permissions only apply to all projects, resources, and views selected for the My Organization category. However, a user in the default Project Managers group (who is associated to the My Organization and My Projects categories) has a different set of category permissions for the objects in the My Organization category. This allows you to conveniently set a more or less restrictive set of permissions for different types of users to a group of projects, resources, and views.

noteNote
For more information about category permissions, see Project Server 2010 category permissions. For more information about how categories relate to groups, see Plan groups, categories, and RBS in Project Server 2010.
