Can't change "Assigned to" property?
Posted by Rami Aalto (M-Files) on 12 November 2018 01:23 PM

In some cases it would be handy if you could change the "Assigned To" property of an assignment to someone else, but trying this gives you an error. 

Changing an assignment's "Assigned To" property requires "Full control of vault" permissions. Unfortunately "Full control of vault" is not the same as giving the user(s) all the other permissions in M-Files Admin tool. "Full control of vault" gives some extra permissions to the user not found in the other permissions. It makes no difference if the user has full permissions to the object related to the assignment itself, either. Unfortunately the extra permissions the "Full control of the vault" are the ones needed to make the change to the "Assigned to" property.

An improvement suggestion (ID #149136) is already under evalutation and if implemented, the feature is published on our release notes pages (
