Grant access to tasks

As an Adobe Workfront administrator, you can use an access level to define a user’s access to tasks, as explained in Access levels overview.

For information about using custom access levels to manage users’ access to other object types in Workfront, see Create or modify custom access levels.

Access requirements

You must have the following access to perform the steps in this article:

Adobe Workfront plan
Adobe Workfront license
Access level configurations

You must be a Workfront administrator.

NOTE: If you still don't have access, ask your Workfront administrator if they set additional restrictions in your access level. For information on how a Workfront administrator can modify your access level, see Create or modify custom access levels.

Configure user access to tasks using a custom access level

  1. Begin creating or editing the access level, as explained in Create or modify custom access levels.

  2. Click the gear icon on the View or Edit button to the right of Tasks, then select the abilities you want to grant under Fine-tune your settings.

    note note
    When you configure an access level setting for a certain type of object, that configuration doesn’t affect the users’ access to objects with a lower rank. For example, you can restrict users from deleting tasks in their access level, but this does not restrict them from deleting issues, which are lower-ranking than tasks.For more information about the hierarchy of objects, see the section Interdependency and hierarchy of objects in the article Understand objects in Adobe Workfront.
  3. (Optional) To restrict inherited permissions for tasks from higher ranking objects, click Set additional restrictions, then select Never inherit document access from projects, tasks, issues, etc.

  4. (Optional) To configure access settings for other objects and areas in the access level you are working on, continue with one of the articles listed in Configure access to Adobe Workfront, such as Grant access to financial data.

  5. When you are finished, click Save.

    After the access level is created, you can assign it to a user. For more information, see Edit a user’s profile.

Access to tasks by license type

For information about what users in each access level can do with tasks, see the section Tasks in the article Functionality available for each object type.

Access to shared tasks

As the owner or creator of an issue, you can share with other users by granting them permissions to it, as explained in Share a task.

When you share any object with another user, the recipient’s rights on it are determined by a combination of two things:

  • The permissions that you grant to your recipient for the object
  • The recipient’s access level settings for the object’s type
