Hello, short time lurker, first time poster here,
I am setting up a SG server, previously only lightly used, to support a 130+ cohort of seniors working on 10+ projects. My initial use case is limited in scope (asset review and timesheets) but we hope to use SG for more going forward.
I coordinate senior project for my university’s digital media department. Projects span from animation & vfx, game development, VR/XR projects, and web/mobile/experimental projects.
My current questions involve default template use and permissions for a shared server and my particular goals.
1. Is the plainly labeled “template project” the most generic/flexible for non-film/game projects? We have web, mobile, and museum exhibition projects. I do not know enough yet of the tool or the project needs to develop my own template yet.
2. Is there a way (or place) I can view the default permissions item by item, like a spreadsheet, for Manager and Artist? The permission tree as offered for editing is so deep and complex it’s difficult to compare differences and see how best to accomplish my goals below. (I’ve been told no by SG - any creative ideas?)
2a. I want to enable student team leaders to act like managers, but only for their own project. My starting point for now is to add permissions to the Artist role, not remove some from the Manager role.
2b. I want to let all students see and comment (only) on the work posted in projects they are not assigned to.
