Reactivate a user account in Project Server 2010


Applies to: Project Server 2010

Summary: Turn on deactivated user accounts by using the Manage Users page in PWA Server Settings.

After deactivating a user account, you may need to reactivate it at some later time. Because the user information still exists in the Project Server database, you simply need to change the account status from Inactive to Active.

Before you perform this procedure, confirm that:

  • You have read Manage users in Project Server 2010.

  • You have access to Project Server 2010 through the Microsoft Project Web App site.


    The Manage users and groups global permission in Project Server 2010 is required to complete this procedure.

To reactivate a user account

Use this procedure to reactivate a deactivated Project Server 2010 user account. After you have performed this procedure, the reactivated account is able to access Project Server 2010.
