Default User Role¶
The Default User Role when project is shared and the user is not part of the project drop down list allows you to assign a default role for people that will get a share link and are not part of the project. Typically this would be Viewer meaning the user can only view the project.
The Links screen displays all linked projects for the current project e.g. Local Parent Subprojects, External Parent Subprojects, Local Child Projects, and Active Sharing of subprojects. And you can use Add Link to link in Local Parent Subprojects and External Parent Subprojects to your current project.
Local Parent Subprojects¶
This feature allows you to link different sub projects together into a Parent project. This is very useful at it allows you to create a sub project that only includes as an example: bathymetry and reservoir data. Then in another sub-project you may have all the well bore trajectories. Then by linking these projects into your parent project you can focus on the field design and layout. If the sub-project with bathymetry/reservoir data gets updated with more or better bathymetry then your project is updated automatically. Furthermore, by using FieldTwin User Roles and Project Permissions you can easily control who can upload, modify and/or remove 3D Surfaces, and only allow the projects to be linked into other projects. See the illustration below for an example:
The project above has two (2) linked sub-projects namely "bathy", which contains the bathymetry and reservoir data only, and "wells" that contains the well trajectory data only.
Add Link - Click this button to link sub projects into your parent project. This will display the following dialog:
Account - Select the account from the list of accounts you have permission to access from.
Project - Select the project you will link a subproject from.
Subproject - Finally select the subproject from the list to link into this project.
In the dialog above this project is also shared in a FieldTwin Collaborate session on a different tenant and therefore the warning is presented so you do accidentally share a project without meaning to.
Trashcan - Press the trashcan icon to deleted the link.
