Image: vectorhot/Adobe Stock One really essential task a job manager admin can take on is restricting user access to the bare minimum required to get their task done. Provide a user too much control and they could inadvertently damage your project; give a user insufficient control and they will not have the ability to complete their work.

Orangescrum gives you all the power you require to manage user function and produce Function Groups to make access management even simpler. For instance, you could produce a new Role Group for a specific department, set specific actions that the group can take and after that appoint users to the group.

What you’ll require to produce a Function Group with Orangescrum

The only thing you’ll require for this to work is a valid Orangescrum account.

This will not work with the community edition, so if you’re hosting Orangscrum on your own data center or third-party host, you will not find this function, as it’s only available via the cloud edition.

With your Orangescrum cloud account ready, let’s develop a Function Group.

How to produce your first Role Group

Log in to your Orangescrum account as a user with admin benefits. On the primary page, click Task Template in the left navigation (Figure A).
