Defined Roles

Review the Project Roles already defined.

The 'Defined Roles' list is available for selection for any element in the model; for example, you can select roles on the 'Project Authors' page of the 'People' dialog, and the Resource Allocation window.

You can also specify other roles on these dialogs, but such roles are not added to the 'Defined Roles' list.

Project Authors Resource Allocation


  • Deleting a role has no effect on any Project Author definition having this role; the deleted role becomes a simple text entry in the Project Author definition
  • You can transport these role definitions between models, using the 'Export Reference Data' and 'Import Reference Data' options
