This topic covers how authors can interact with others in projects without worrying about non-authors compromising the data.
Investigating Data Using Interactions
Project content authors can interact with view-only users in projects while still maintaining project integrity. View-only users have an optimized view of the project data without seeing the clutter of unnecessary authoring content controls.
View-only users can’t perform authoring tasks such as creating projects, modifying data, editing visualizations, or modifying canvas layouts, so those controls aren’t displayed to them while they are investigating project content.
However, view-only users can still:
Filter data in visualizations without any restrictions. See Exploring Data Using Filters.
Perform analytic functions to delve into data provided by project authors such as sorting and drilling in data elements. See Exploring Data in Other Ways.
Perform the undo and redo actions in projects. See Undoing and Redoing Edits.
Note:View-only users can also use presentation mode to look at projects in an even more simplified mode, without the header, and with the filter bar controls limited to opening and editing the existing filter selections only. See Viewing Streamlined Content.
Viewing Streamlined Content
You can use the presentation mode to view a project and its visualizations without the visual clutter of the canvas toolbar and authoring options.
Tip:In the project editor, click the Filter Panel toggle icon to collapse the filter bar before starting the presentation mode. You can hide the filters bar to maximize the canvas space and provide a cleaner view of the project’s visualizations.
