I don't want to show Administrative time tasks to some user in project server.

How can we hide it? By default, all user can see set of administrative tasks.

In project server with Project Permission Mode enabled, you can control the PWA setting Links for a specific user by managing his Global permission by doing the following:

  • Open PWA Settings.
  • Security > Users.
  • Global Permissions > Select the Permission you need > Check Allow or Deny.

But unfortunately, you can't manage the permission for a specific link because the links have been grouped in main category.

So In your case, you need to hide Administrative Time below Time and Task Management in PWA Settings for a specific user.

So, you should first

  • Specify the main category in global permission that holds Administrative Time that is Manage Time Tracking

  • Check on Deny.

  • Go back yo your PWA setting, you will note that Administrative Time has been hidden.

Let's abbreviate the above discussion,

  • You can manage global permission for a specific user to control PWA settings.
  • You can't only manage permission for a specific link like Administrative Time,Meanwhile you can deny its main category(Group of PWA setting links) Manage Time Tracking.
  • Deny Manage Time Tracking in global permission, will lead to losing other links like

    • Line Classifications
    • Timesheet Settings and Defaults
    • Administrative Time
    • Task Settings and Display
    • Timesheet Managers
