Project Properties

Hello Everyone,

I am working with ProjectWise Explorer SS4. Under project properties, View, I want all my users to be able to set a "Personal view assigned to this folder". My admins can but not users. I have looked everywhere I can think for the settings that would control this. Any ideas? I am on Int SS3.

Thanks, J03 C:\

  • This is likely due to the fact users don't have permission to modify projects.  So any folder that is a project(has the ProjectWise icon overlying the folder symbol), the user will not be able to apply his personal view settings.  PBut if they pick any of the individual folders within that project, they should be able to apply their personal view.


  • The ability to create and save a personal view requires that the user(s) have Write rights on the folder.

    I've filed a CR on this as I fail to understand why the creation of a view, which does not modify data, requires these rights.

    I'd much rather see the ability to create views as a User setting in Administrator.

  • Here are a few possible workarounds for this issue (tested on PW
    1. The PW admin could meet with the users to come up with a few global view(s) that would satisfy the user’s needs, and then assign them to the project folders.

    2. The user can create and set a default view for the datasource , search result, environment or folder through the manage views GUI. In PW Explorer I logged in as a test user, went to views\ managed views, created a view called TB , clicked on the 'set defaults tab, and assigned it to a project folder called “Test Project” which my user does not have write access to.
    When the user then goes to that folder the personal view is set and will work, even though they do not have write permissions and it is greyed out.
