I have different kind of project.
Private, semi-private, semi-public, public
private : only project members can view project and project content,
semi-private: some parts are private, some parts are public,
semi-public : every body can read, but only project members can write,
public : every body can read, write comments, only projects members can create lists and milestones
1) So far, I can just create public projects.
I can't find ways to create private or semi-private projects.
I can declare a to do list, and milestone to be private, but a blog registered user (autor) can still access content even if he's not project member.
2) Also I would like to have a project category where all projects are private.
Couldn't find how to do it.
I tried with capability manager enhanced and press permit core, but they don't seem to integrate well with project manager.
I can see the message in the category, but I don't have the dialog boxes (which I have in regular wp category)
Currently you can manage user access from Project Manager > Settings > General. And if an user is not assigned to a project he can not see the project. To see a project the user must be assigned to that. And you can hide private to-dos from other co-workers.
But the projects or the tasks can not be “read only” to the public. You can allow your registered users to access the projects, but they'll be able to add comments and assign tasks to other users and I'm sure you don't want to do that.
You can hire a developer to achieve the feature and may request for a feature like this to refine user access depending on projects in our Feature Request Forum.
