How to setup permission to view projects in Project Server

Hello, I need to be able to setup access for multiple (4 people) to view Project Plans on the Project Server.
Right now the only way is to have the Project Managers give someone a fake (ohr) task.
That can't be the only way to let managers view their Project Plans.
Thank you so much for your help.

There are several ways to let managers view their project plans:

Include them in the project team (no task assignment): this way they also get read access to the Project Site.
Include them in the project team and assign them to some task (what your project managers did): this way they also get read/write access to the Project Site.
If this is Project Server 2010, the project managers can grant special permissions to their projects, from Project Professional or Project Web App.
THE PREFERRED WAY: you can use groups and categories, in order to grant managers automatic access to projects (without any of the previous methods).  Please see the following manual (pags. 5-39, 280-293) for details: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=212383

leopolde,

Hi I think it is Project Server 2007. When I click Build Team and add someone to the Team they still can't see the project. Is there a setting I can change so that they can see the projects?

Thank you for all of your help!

A couple questions:

* Do you want the managers to see ALL projects or just the projects in their departments?
* If they should only access projects in their departments, do each department have a project manager?

leopolde,
1) The Managers need to see only their departments (or selected projects).
2) Yes every Project has a PM.

Hope this helps.

Hi,
My second question was a little bit different:
   Do each deparment have a project manager?

I don't know if the company changed something on the Project Server or if it was being done wrong. But I can now go into Tools \ Build Team from Enterprise and add a person and they can now see the Project.
Thanks.
