The task owner is the only resource who can complete and submit SmartBeats for a task. You can consider them the team leader for that task, who knows what the rest of the team is doing, and directs their work.
Each task can only have one task owner. However, you can add additional resources to a task who are only allowed to record their hours worked on the task in timesheets, and cannot use SmartBeats.
To assign a task owner to a task:
Or, if you’re editing an existing task, in the Assigned to column for the task, click + owner and select the resource’s name. (Or, if you’re changing the resource assigned, click the name of the current resource.)
All users with Project Resource permission are automatically assigned to new projects and tasks you create. They’ll be able to record time against the task in their timesheets, provided the project has Execution status.
Their hours will be billed at the rates assigned in the project’s rates.
