Beta Permissions: What projects can I see in my Projects section?

This article is for Harvest beta permissions. The beta program is available to team accounts who opted in. If you're looking for information on the Projects section for a non-beta account, you can find that in the Projects FAQ section of our regular Help Center.

The purpose of the Projects section is not to list the projects you’re assigned to for time tracking. Instead, it lists the projects you’re allowed to report on. There are two things that affect what projects you can report on:

  1. Your team permissions
  2. The project’s permissions

If you’re an Administrator, you can see all project reports in the Harvest account, regardless of the project’s permissions.

If you’re a Manager, you can only report on projects you manage, and projects you’re assigned to that are set to Show the project report to everyone on the project. Other projects won’t be listed on your Projects page, even if you or your assigned people can track time and expenses to them. You can only see fee-based budgets and billable amounts if you have permission to view billable rates.  

If you’re a Member, you won’t be able to see any project reports, unless a project you’re assigned to is set to show the project report to everyone on the project. For those projects, you’re only able to see hourly budgets.

Learn more about beta team permission levels and what each one can see.

Show a project report to everyone on the project

Administrators and Managers with permission to create projects can find a project’s Permissions setting when they’re creating or editing a project. By setting it to Show project report to everyone on the project, all assigned Members and Managers who aren’t managing the project will be able to see the total hours tracked to the project and the progress of any hourly budget.
