All other usage rights are also set up right here. So if we set all to manager ( except feedback, which should stay on reporter ) no one except the manager will be able to edit things.

To set up a single user as manager of a project just follow this steps:

  • Direct from Project
    • Manage -> Manage Projects -> Click on the ProjectName -> Add user to project with Access Level "manager".
