I have several filters that are displayed to users. I have been tasked with limiting what certain users can select.
For one filter it's easy. Certain users should only see a certain subset, and off the SERVER pulldown I'll just add a filter so that they only get what they're allowed to see. Straightforward, that one.
But I can't figure out another requirement. Those same users should be forced to see ALL records for a particular filter. The field in the data source is binary, and I need to prevent them from selecting values. They have to take all records. But an elite set of users should be allowed to select some-or-all on the filter.
We have these people separated into a special group (which is how I'll do the first requirement described above.) Is there a way I can see which user group a particular user is in from a calc field? If so, I can hide/display the filter for the second requirement. (See the threads about hiding/displaying parameters, legends, etc.)
If I can't make that determination in a calc field, does anyone have ideas about how I can force some users to see all records, and allow others to filter on a particular field?
