Along with the access level that users are granted, you can also grant them permissions to View or Manage finances for specific projects, tasks, or issues that you have access to share.

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

Share an object and grant financial permissions

Consider the following when granting financial permissions to objects:

  • You can grant financial permissions to projects, tasks, issues, and rate cards.
  • Permissions can be inherited: if you have View Finance permissions to a project, you automatically inherit View Finance permissions to the tasks and issues on the project.

To grant financial permissions to an object:

  1. Go to a task, project, or issue that you want to share with others.

  2. Near the name of the object, click the More menu , then click Sharing.

  3. In the Give <Object name> access to field start typing the name of a user, team, role, group or a company that you want to share the object with.

    note tip
    You can share an object only with active users, teams, roles, or companies.
  4. If a drop-down menu appears to the right of the name you selected, click one of the following options that is available:

    • View it

    • Contribute to it

    • Manage it


  5. In the same drop-down menu, click Advanced Settings, then do one of the following:

    • If you selected one of the three options in the previous step, make sure View Finance is selected.
    • If you selected Manage Finance in the previous step, make sure Manage Finance is selected.
  6. Click Save.
