Setting up Project Roles for a new project

Use Project Roles to manage each organization's ability to create information on your project.

Use project roles to manage an organization’s ability to use different:

  • Document types
  • Mail types
  • Document statuses
  • Review Status Sets (for Workflow Templates)

Already set up project roles for another project?

If you like, you can copy the roles across from an existing project that your company owns, or is a Project Admin for. If you decide to do this, complete this step before you create any other roles, as copying from another project will delete any existing roles in the new project.

  1. Click the Copy From Project button.
