✍️ Editor (Specific Projects)


Runn provides 4 levels of account access - admin, editor, viewer and timesheet only - with varying degrees of capabilities.

Editors (Specific Projects) permissions can manage and only edit the projects they are assigned to. They can still view all projects and people details in the account.

Typically, if you just want a Project Manager to edit specific projects but not others, you can assign them as Editor (Specific Projects)

βœ… What Editor (Specific Projects) Can Do
