Changing Key Findings Permissions

Overview

To limit what a group of users can see in Key Findings, you'll need to set permissions on both the folder and the items it contains. If you edit the item's permissions but not the permissions of the folder the item is in, your user will not be able to see the item. If you edit the permissions of the folder, but fail to edit the permissions of the item itself, your user will only be able to see the folder - not its contents.

Permissions are most effective in managing user access when you work with groups rather than individual logins.

  1. Open Key Findings
  2. Right click on the folder and select Permissions, or
  3. Click on the folder once, then click on Permissions in the menu bar

  5. Add or remove users and groups as desired
  6. Click OK

Change Item Permissions

  1. If you do not remember what dataset the item is, open the item in Key Findings

  4. Click Permissions
  5. Deselect the checkbox to stop the item from automatically inheriting permissions
