Modify display of Project Members in Project Warehouse
As per discussions at the Annual Meeting, the list of project members in the project warehouse includes a number of people who need to be in the group and have access to the data, but are not actually project members.
I proposed that people in the list of members whose only role is one or more of: Other, IT Administrator, or Site Operations Manager, not be displayed in the list of Project Members. If a project wants someone listed who has one of these roles, they would need to have an additional role that would cause their information to be displayed.
Some additional suggestions to streamline needed site member creation (which I hope will generate some discussion)is given below.
I would further suggest that in the Project Editor, under Project-About, that the PI and Administrator fields automatically create members with roles PI and IT Administrator with full permissions. The IT Administrator field should also be expanded to allow for multiple entries (for projects with experiments at multiple sites). These fields would also need to be editable only by someone with grant privilege.
It might also be useful to create the appropriate member with the Site Operations Manager role when an experiment is added to a project and a site is selected. It would be more useful, though, if this were done at the project level, as a project will be created before the experiments. If the site(s) are selected at the project level, then the IT Manager member could also be generated from this field, and auto updated when there is a change of IT Manager or Site Operations Manager.
