User roles: who can do what?

In Timeneye, you can set up different levels of permission and roles for your team members.

Permission level VS Role: what's the difference?

The permission level is the hierarchy of users on the whole workspace.

Whereas the role is assigned to a specific user for a specific project or group.


Permission levels in Timeneye:

  • Owner
  • Admin
  • Member

Roles in Timeneye:

  • Project Manager (PM)
  • Group Manager (GM)


Owner is the top level of permission in a Timeneye workspace. He/She has access to basically all the functions and views available, including managing the payment and subscription and deleting the whole workspace, plus:

  • managing the team (adding, archiving and editing team members'roles);
  • managing projects (creating, editing, archiving projects);
  • managing account integrations (link, edit, unlink);
  • accessing the Import feature;
  • managing workspace settings;
  • running reports.


Admin: the admin has all the owner functions except managing the payment and subscription and deleting the workspace.


Member: basically can track time and edit his/her personal settings and user integration.
Users can also be given roles for specific projects or groups.

Project Managers can perform management functions and run reports but only for the active projects, they are managers of. Group Managers can create projects, perform management functions and run reports but only for the groups they're managers of.

How to change a user level of permission

Owners and Admins can edit the users' permissions level.

From Management>Team members, click on the user you want to edit. In the field "Workspace access level", you can set up which permission you want to give to the user.

How to set a user's hourly rate and cost

From the same view, you can also decide to assign an hourly rate, and also an hourly cost to your user.

This will help you calculate the profitability of your projects.
