Managing Projects

Step-by-step instructions on how to use Projects in Web Management Console

A project is a set of files in Zoom that a Zoom user has access to only if they are a member of that project. A user may also have specific permissions pertaining to a project. A project called defproj is created automatic during initial installation.

Users with ADMINISTER permission have access to edit projects. They set the up the root directory in the Zoom Server for the project, i.e. the exact location in the Zoom repository where all the digital assets for the project are held. The administrator can add / remove team members. Users are not able to access assets in a project until they are added to the project.
