ReqSuite® Requirements Manager (RM)
User Assignment

For a more efficient performance of projects, ReqSuite® RM supports the collaboration of multiple users. Therefore, it enables an explicitly controlled collaboration based on the individual assignment of project roles and content items.

Administrators can assign users to projects via clicking the arrow button, drag and drop, and also in bulk mode.

The project roles supported by ReqSuite® RM are as follows:

Project Manager

This role enables the execution of all operations within a project as well as the assignment of users and interfaces in the global project administration menu. In particular, a “Project Manager” can access and edit all content items, independent of whether he/she is assigned to these items as the responsible user and independent of the state of the content items. Furthermore, “Project Manager” can assign content items and content categories (including corresponding tasks) to other users or perform imports of external data into a project, which is not possible for other project participants.

Project Worker

This role enables creating and editing all items to which a user with this role has been assigned by a “Project Manager”. Whether “Project Workers” can view all content items or not depends on the definition of the security mode in the template on which the corresponding project is based. If “Project Workers” are responsible for a content category, they can set other users as responsible users for certain items of this category.

Pure Reader

This role provides read-only access to the content items of a project. Whether or not “Pure Readers” can view all content items depends on the definition of the security mode in the template on which the corresponding project is based.

Group Memberships

In this column the created groups can be assigned to the users. If some groups are not assigned to a user in this project, then these groups cannot be selected in the project.

In order to automatically assign certain users to each project when it is newly created, a group called “Core Team” can be created. A user can be assigned to this group by setting “Core Team” as the default group for this user. All members of the “Core Team” will be automatically assigned to each new project. Note that this only affects basic users, as admins are already assigned to new projects.
