The issue is not that behavior (as it does make sense) but the fact that the
only two user accounts are managers in the only project - there are no admin
accounts. This makes it impossible to change system settings. One of the
accounts needs to be promoted to admin, but I can't find a way to do this. I
have direct access to the database, but I couldn't see how to change
permissions manually on my first look.
