How to allow users to be able to only edit task work on a task

Hi, I try to allow "Project user" to have edit access to "Project Task work (Object project.task.work)" but read-only access to "Task fields" (Project, planned hours, assigned to etc.)(Object (project.task)).

If I configure it that way in user access group, the edit it's no longer available then no access to "Project task work". Any idea of solve that?

I would create:

  • a new menu item
  • a tree view of project.task.work
  • a form view of project.task.work

Your users would be able to create task work, but they would need to select the task.

Thanks for your answer, the problem I saw with that approach is that the ergonomic will be changed significantly :(

I agree with you. The other solution would be to put all the task fields readonly while editing the task and adding task work.

Thanks Maxime, with that I solved my first problem (see How can we block the editing of planned hours in a task), I will post my implantation for this question later this week.
