Project Management

The Project Management section can be viewed only by those users who have either Read/Write or View Access.  Users with Read/Write access can create new projects, edit projects, add users to a selected project, delete a project, remove a user, and change the access privileges of users added to the selected project.  Whereas, View Access enables users to view project data but blocks the ability to alter existing data or add new data.  View Access users can select a project, view project details and view users assigned to the project.
