Hi Monica,

Thanks for your feedback. It's so interesting to get feedback that challenges your own perception of simplicity. It has never occurred to me before that this might be confusing. Now that you mention it though, I can see that there could be room for improvement.

I would like to hear how other users think in this matter.

Best regards,
Karolina

Hi

Although I can understand Monica's view, I don't find it confusing. The members "outside the group" as she puts are actually a pool of members, from where you can pick members and put them in the groups you create. If the member disappears from that pool, how can I then find them if I want to add that same member to another group? And then what? - steal it from the first group? Active Directory etc works in the same way as Projectplace, more or less.

Maybe there's just a need for a more explicit separation between the "member pool" and the groups. Let's say where the pool is on the left and the groups on the right. Or an interface where you create/edit the group, and then drag and drop members from the pool.

Just thoughts....

Best regards,
Bianca

Hi
I can see your point but it would be somehow better to separate them in some way.
Your comment on how to pick them if they dissappear from the single list - as I understand it, when you write an mailadress it automatically picks the address from Projectplace if it's there somewhere. So if you have them in a group, it should pick them from that list, isn't that right? So it is not a problem for me, if it's working like that.

Your idea in a list to the right and a grouplist on the left, is one suggestion that could work.

Best regards,
Monica

I can understand the idée with an ”pool” of users but what will happen when that “pool” grows to let say more that 50 or event >100 users? For me this seems like it could be a problem to get an overview of the users. My way to use the groups and users are that when a new user is added for example a customer, then I assign this user to the appropriate customer group. And in this way my users are not usually in two different groups at the same time. But my point is that I think that it could easily get to that point when you lose the overview of the user situation, especially if you have multiple projects and different customers for each project.
