I would like to suggest a feature in user permission. This suggestion originates from our concern of access allowed to a user to inventory related tabs . In the inventory tab , there are column of average cost & total cost. This information exposes to a user the average cost of a product and the profit margin of the company which, logically speaking, is strictly confidential information. Actually, this information is very sensitive and top confidential supposed to be limited only to upper Management. The company becomes prone to serious harm if the cost are exposed to competitors.
In our situation, the inputs are managed by several users who are given access according to the task assigned to each. No one user has access to all the tabs. However, we find ourselves in a serious disadvantage where we have given user’s access to inventory items. There, all the information of our products cost is available to them. This is very serious and peril for our company with constant concern about the information visible to the user lest he exposes it to our competitors. In such situation, it would be very very harmful to our company if the competitor has information of our real and exact costing, please understand.
So, it is our suggestion to hide the average cost & total cost columns by an option as below in user permission features:
So, the display will look something like this….
I wonder if this feature can be added. But, if it can, no doubt, it would be a great feature for MANAGER and, I am sure, many users will find it extremely useful to protect this sensitive information.
