Cannot add a user to a project


I just added a new user to the system. Now I want to add this person to the project, but the system does not recognize her name when I type it in the field.

Anyone know why this is?

What is the error? If you are not getting the options, it might just mean that you do not have "Browse Users" global permission.

When I am typing I just get the message 'no matches' when I am done it says 'the value [name] is invalid'

I poked around in permissions but cannot find a 'Browse Users' permission

OK, I poked around some more and found the 'Browse Users' permission. Fixed the issue. Thanks so much.
