DNG users need to take on different, mutually exclusive roles throughout the lifecycle of the project


Bob 3 (9911) | asked Oct 12 '17, 1:23 a.m.

My product development test organization has an RTC workflow where they need individual users to take on different, mutually exclusive roles throughout the lifecycle of the project. 

For example, here is the configuration at the beginning of the project:
  • John Doe is a Preparer and NOT a Reviewer
  • Sarah Smith is a Reviewer and NOT a Preparer
Here is the configuration mid-project:
  • John Doe is a Reviewer and NOT a Preparer
  • Sarah Smith is a Preparer and NOT a Reviewer
The need for this is driven by small teams and regulations prohibiting the same person being both a reviewer and preparer. The role changes are predictable and can be planned. It will follow a workflow where issues are identified and resolved and the identifier cannot be a resolver and vice versa, depending on how the tasks are assigned to the personnel. So for a time period, the users will have specific roles. Later on in the project, at a defined time, the users will take on different, mutually exclusive roles. Maybe this functionality could be tied to a timeline of some kind. 
Do you have any ideas for implementing this short of manually changing the user roles in the project area frequently throughout the project lifecycle?
