project leaders

I miss the ability to give the project leaders extra rights (e.g. to create releases and manage their project). Should I give all project leaders admin rights?

I wouldn't want to tell you how to manage your user access, but yes, it sounds like you want to make your project managers into admins.

Hmm... I would prefer to give them full rights to manage their projects and all users involved; not the whole company. I'll give it a thought though. Please note management of project rights, members etc. as a feature request.

To separate out your user access - *admin* access more to the point - you may want to use separate FogBUGZ instances side by side. For more details check this out:
(Look at #3 in particular)

FYI, this does not eat up your licenses because FB licenses are based on the total number of individual humans using FB, i.e. not the number of machines or installations etc.

Nope, this would be too much separation. Some projects are tightly and others are loosely related; it is all in the same company on 2 ranges of products.

I agree with Adriaan.

It should be the responsibility of the project leader to generate areas and versions, but he can’t be allowed to change ODBC-connection for example.

In our organization we have quite a lot of projects and the developers are often members of more then one project. So there is a problem.

We cant  let all the project leaders have fogbugz-admin right and the ability to disrupt FogBugz  for all the other projects. On the other hand there is great overhead to force the project-leaders to request the changes from the sysman. And on the third hand it is also great overhead to create e separate FogBugz-instance for each project.

The Project-leader admin roll is much wanted.
