What’s a project? And what’s an organization?
Each organization has a user role called the Organization Administrator, who has permissions to configure Aconex for their organization. That includes setting up user roles for their colleagues.
The organization that sets up a project within Aconex is called the project-owning organization.
Who looks after projects?
The Project Administrator/s, who usually work for the project-owning organization, have permissions that let them manage the project.
They can configure project-wide settings in Aconex that affect everyone working on that project, whether they’re part of the project-owning organization or a collaborating organization.
How organizations work on projects
That said, users can override some organizational and project settings, for example, when it comes to attaching signatures to project mail. If the user doesn’t attach her own signature, the organization’s signature settings will be applied to her mail. But if she sets her own signature, that user-specific setting will be applied to her mail.
