Hi, we have set up our teamwork project user settings such that I am the "Lead Architect" and my colleague is "Architect". This means that only I am to change the project preference settings. I have changed the unit preferences in my project preference settings so that units are always displayed to only two decimal places.
I saved the project and sent my changes, however my colleague unit settings are still set to three decimal places. Since her user settings are "Architect" she is not able to change her project settings.
Worse still, when she sends something to me and I receive it my settings revert back to three decimal places.
First question - How do I update and lock these settings for all teamwork users so that everyone has the same project preferences?
Second question - Why do my settings change after receiving updates from my colleague? As I am "Lead Architect" surely the project settings for all users should follow my settings?
I am not completely sure but if my memory serves right, the other user has to leave the Project, then join again for these kind of settings to take effect.
In any case, it is worth a try.

I confirm the words of LaszloNagy, I noted this need to leave the project to update the color and the user avatar. I guess it's the same for collaboration settings :roll:
