Profiles

A user's profile determines the level of access within the organization. Zoho Projects classifies profiles into two categories.

  • User Profile: These profiles are assigned to portal users. Users in this profile can access modules with both internal and external flag.
  • Client Profile: These profiles are assigned to client users. Users in this profile can only access modules with an external flag.

Profiles can be created and customized to define permission sets and assign them to a particular group of users based on their role. Profiles can be configured by the Portal Owner and any user can be given the relevant permission to create and customize profiles. We also have some default profiles to get you started.

Benefits:

  1. Create custom profiles and set access privileges
  2. Set different permissions for portal users and client users
  3. Customize permissions at module level
  4. Clone profiles
Feature Availability: User based Enterprise plan.
