We frequently upgrade our software based on customer suggestions. Recently a customer requested functionality which would allow information to be "inherited" from parent projects in the hierarchy. We thought it was a great idea so the new Project Assistant™ allows both team privileges and linked documents to be "inherited" from parent projects, if desired.
This new functionality will allow you to specify a team, for example, responsible for a product family and provide those teammates with the appropriate privileges for the relevant products within that family without having to re-specify the privileges for each product.
Inheriting documents will allow you to set high-level FMEA , Control Plan, and Process Flow documents and have them accessible from an individual project level.
