- All Owners and Admins can access and edit the Project List as well as access all Single Project Views (except for Private Project Views created by other Admins).
- All Users with at least Edit or Add/edit Projects permissions have access to the Project List and all the Project Views listed, unless specified otherwise via special project permissions.
- Project Data Fields can be used for filtering or sorting the Project List and can also be added from here.
