For most businesses, the portfolio levels encompasses a similar structure to their organisational hierarchy or investment hierarchy. In FHQ, a portfolio manager can have access to all projects under his portfolio.
Program ManagerProgram managers oversee all projects that roll into their program. For most companies, programs are grouped by similar or related projects.

II. Company Access Levels (customisable)

A Company Role will then be given appropriate access to Pipeline, Projects, Portfolios, etc. 

Company access levels are permission sets that allow members to perform different tasks within a company. By assigning company members to access levels, you determine the information they can see and actions they are allowed to perform. Focus HQ Access Levels can be "None", "View", or "Update" 

You can have "Update" access to Projects, but "View" access to Portfolios, or None to other modules.

Default access settings will be in place during the turn-over of the environment to the client but can be updated by client anytime.

See Focus HQ Default access levels settings below.



III. Admin 

An Admin is like an "ALL Update", Super-user access. Regardless if your access is "None", "View", or "Update" within Company Settings, the moment your user is tagged as ADMIN, you can already access/update anything within the environment. Currently, assigning a user as "Admin" can only be done back-end by the Focus HQ Support Team.
