Transit NXT v 4.0 SP10 build 1754.2

Hello,

Does anyone know if you can specifiy which projects a user sees in the 'Project browser' window? Or at least whether you can restrict access to projects via a Transit setting?

Hello,

Does anyone know if you can specifiy which projects a user sees in the 'Project browser' window? Or at least whether you can restrict access to projects via a Transit setting? Note that I don't mean remove access permissions in Windows – you can deny access to a project folder in Windows, but then Transit will complain that the working folder for project X is missing and offer to recreate it.

I can use the 'User roles' tool to restrict what translators can do/change/delete/etc. in Transit, but this doesn't affect what they see in the 'Project browser' window.

Thanks.

User scope works (with limitations) for new projects Oct 8, 2018

Thanks for your reply. Setting the user scope in a new project does hide the project from other users, but you cannot define the User, i.e. the User field is preset to my user and is uneditable. This means such a project is also hidden from a checker, for example, and you can't 'assign' a project to another user, only to yourself.

I've played around a bit with this, but I don't think there is a functionality that will do what we want. To be fair though,
