User access - restricting export option


#1

Is it possible to restrict a user from exporting data? I am using server edition. Thanks.


#3

Exporting what? Are you talking about Export button in bottom-right corner? If so, restricting makes no sense to me. User can already see data. Exporting just allows them to see them in different formatting.


#4

I don’t want the restricted user to export data in a format (pdf, txt, excel) where it can be sent anywhere by email or saved in USB.


#5

There is no point in restricting permission. Any user who can see the screen could also capture data with a screen shot and do the same thing.


#6

Capturing data with a screenshot and having a data (say thousand pages of sales data) ready in a format where analysis can be performed is very different. If this doesn’t make sense to both of you, fine.


#7

Even without Export button, user can simply copy & paste any table to spreadsheet program. Hiding Export button won’t prevent user from “exporting”.


#8

Got it. Thanks
