Project for the web - I created a project and create a security group for projects. added the team members.


Assign the task to teams. Now only task owner should able to edit the percentage complete for the task. 


Kindly Suggest

Hello @sonika755 ,

Unfortunately this isn't possible, once the user has edit access to the project via the M365 Group - they can edit all tasks as you have seen. 


Thanks Paul for your reply. How the project manager will control the project plan. Example team member can delete the project task and other owner can update the task for another users. can you please suggest.

Hello @sonika755 ,

Unfortunately there is nothing out of the box. You could customise it though with custom code. Here is an example of preventing users deleting the project: 


Hi Paul, I am having issues with giving access to people on the Teams that are assigned to the Project for the Web. They can only edit the % Complete and check or uncheck that they are complete. How can the assigned member change dates on their tasks?

Pardon me for bumping into this thread. Because of time zone differences, Paul's work day may have already ended.

To answer your question, team members are only allowed to edit the % Complete value and to mark their tasks as completed. This is by design. Hope this helps.
