I might be misinterpreting your question, but going strictly by the license level, it doesn't look like Viewer would have permission to "create/save" custom views
The above page contains a table and if I look at the "Interact" section, the "Create and Share Custom Views" is only checked for Creator and Explorer.
Thanks for the response Mark.
A little testing shows that to be congruent. My follow-up then is what is limiting me from setting my users as explorers? We only have Viewer and Creator licenses, but I am still able to set users as explorers.
If I set the users that need to be able to save views as Explorer (CANNOT Publish) does that keep them as occupying a Viewer License since we do not have Explorer Licenses?
That's a good question and I'll be honest, I haven't played with the newer roles a lot. If you decide to try that out, I would recommend testing it in a non-Production environment and taking a backup of that environment *before* you make the change. The one thing as well, for Explorer (cannot Publish) it's possible that may not get you there in that I know for example that when folks would want to make a change to a workbook via webedit in their browser, if they didn't have "publish" permission they wouldn't be able to save because in essence, if you can "save" something you're basically still "re-publishing it", if that makes sense.
I know that Explorer will let my users be able to save their own views and then I can Deny web edit access to workbooks. (We have PHI and we have to block access to underlying data). So I know setting them as Explorer (cannot publish) will allow them to do what I need them to do.
I'm just not sure if I can do License: Viewer with Site Role: Explorer. Or if it will default up to Creator since we do not have Explorer licenses. Will do some testing and post what I find out.
Though this thread is a bit older, wanted to add that starting with the release of 2019.2 the Viewer license can save "Custom Views"
Nice, thanks Mark!
