Project management view own tasks only in v7?

Is there a way to set the project management to show employees just their own tasks? We have many employees and they all need to add tasks to a project, but see only their tasks. Basically they will all be completing the exact tasks so working in collaboration like a Jira project project is not what we are looking for.

If this is possible, is it also possible to allow the manager to see his/her employees tasks as well? It seems there is a relationship to manager and employees if you look under Human Resources, but this relationship does not seem to be used anywhere else in the system.

END GOAL: Allow users access to a project but view only their own tasks (Assigned to them) and allow managers to see their emplyees' tasks.

Yes it is possible, but the way you have to do this depends on the answer to the following question (which is not clear in your message): Do you want employees to see their own tasks by default and still be able to see others' tasks [1], or do you want them to exclusively see their own tasks without the possibility of seeing the others' [2]?

If [1], then they can filter the tasks with their name as the responsible and save this filter as their default filter (in advanced search). Every time they will open the view, they will have their own filter showing their own task, and they will be able to remove this filter if they want to see all tasks.
If [2], you will have to create a record rule for all the users of a particular group for them to only see their own tasks. You can even set up OpenERP so that they can still create tasks for others, but once they save them, it disappears from their view because they are not the responsible.

Regarding managers, you can use the same mechanisms described in [1] and [2] to achieve that.

Thanks, Fabrice.
