Being a Plan Admin / Contributor in Cascade lets someone have full editing and setup permissions for that plan, and any given person can be an admin on any number of plans.

To add plan admins - also known as contributors - to a specific plan:

  2. Go to the Three-Dot Menu in the top right corner of the page

  3. Select Plan Settings.

  4. ...and then Sharing Settings

After clicking:

You can add Plan Admins / Contributors by typing their names in the corresponding field on the next screen.

After entering their names, the users become admins and the screen can be closed (added names save automatically). The people named will need to refresh their browsers for it to take effect if they have Cascade open at the time.

You'll also see a note that says:

"Any team members with Strategy permission can edit this plan."

Strategy permission still lets people edit ALL goals and plans in the system, and is given on the Admin > Organization page (found under your initials).

If someone has Strategy permission, there is no need to add them as a Plan Admin / Contributor.

Note: The "Plan Admin" functionality replaced the old "Org Strategy Permission" level from prior versions of Cascade.

After selecting "Private" plan:
