    Hiding Rate Information (2000/SR1)

    Is there a way to hide rate information in Project Central so that only certain people can see it? We want all team members to have access to project plans but only PMs and administrators to be able to see hourly rates.

    Thanks,
    Caroline

    Caroline,

    I am not sure if you can do this. But this brings up very "sticky" issues and who can see what.

    In the past in other systems, we have used general labor codes for budgeting purposes. Thus, everyone can see them without issue. Actual costs, however, can then be imported in total at the task level or in total by the GLC or by actual resource. There are plusses and minus's to this as well as it gets complex and anyone who can see the data can back calculate the rates.

    As to your original question, in prior versions of project I don't think you could block access to the rate tables. Not sure about Project Central.
    Regards,

    Gary, any ideas as to where we can check on this? Most of the Project Central info that used to be on Microsoft.com is no longer there (as far as I can tell).

    Thanks,
    Caroline

    Caroline,

    I usually go to the Microsoft Knowledgebase for additional help. I really don't know of any other good MS Project boards to try. Anyone out there have any ideas.
    Regards,
