Users and Roles

Project Manager (TMS)

Content is machine translated from English by Phrase Language AI.

Project managers are in charge of project management, the creation or modification of projects, assignment creation, TMs, TBs and resources management.

Although Project managers have almost the same rights as the Administrator, they cannot view or modify the subscription. If a PM is also acting as a linguist, relevancy settings can also be applied.


A PM can be assigned as the Owner of a project, project template, TM, or TB created by another user and gains the same user rights as if it had been created by them.

PM permissions can be set so that they don't have the right to view/edit/delete projects created by other users unless the PM is set as the owner of the project.

Job owner

Apart from being the owner of an entire project, project template, TM, or TB, Project managers and Administrators can also become job owners. Each user who imports a job into a project automatically becomes the job owner and receives notifications of status changes of such jobs.

Set Project Manager User Rights

Project managers user rights are set by an Administrator and can be very restrictive if required.

PM user rights take precedence when the PM user is assigned as the provider for a job. As an example, if a PM is restricted to only accessing the projects of a specific business unit and is assigned to a job from inside a project of a different business unit, they will not be able to access that job.

To set PM user rights, follow these steps:

  1. From the Users page, select a user and click Edit.

    The Edit page opens.

  2. Ensure the Role is Project manager.

    Settings specific to the Project manager role are displayed.

  3. Select required restrictions and click Save.

    Settings are applied to the specified user.

Modify global server settings is a powerful option than grants PM access to all other settings excepting those that offer separate access rights (i.e. project / project templates / TMs / TBs / Users / clients, domains, subdomains / vendors / analytics dashboards). It also grants PM access to Phrase Language AI and the submitter portal.

If both client and business units are specified, only projects, templates, TMs, or TBs where both the client and business units are specified are available.
