Hi guys,

 

I would like to feed in an idea.

 

Our client would love to give "only dashboard" access to their users. Problem: Today you can build nice and easy dashboards for the users and give them access. Once they have access to those dashboard they also need to have access to the variables shown in the dashboard. That gives them the option to also go into the reports directly and make their own settings once it comes to dimensions and metrics. This often leads to them pulling wrong data.


Our idea:

We would like to be able to switch off the visibilty of variables/reports for certain user groups. Then they can see the data in the dashboard that is well prepared but they cant access the reports directly.

 

Thanks

Max

I'm going to ask a question that seems a bit naive. I have my guesses but I'd like to hear your own story.

 

Would you rather give them dashboard-only access, or would you rather have the individual reports simplified so that they do not pull "wrong" data? (In other words, is the fear of them "pulling wrong data" the only reason why you would want to limit access in this manner?) Additionally, can you elaborate on what you mean by "pulling wrong data?" Perhaps an example?
