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 are not displayed to them while they are investigating project content.
However, view-only users can still:
Filter data in visualizations without any restrictions. For more information, see Exploring Data Using Filters.
Perform analytic functions to delve into data provided by project authors such as sorting and drilling in data elements. For more information, see Exploring Data in Other Ways.
Perform the undo and redo actions in projects. For more information, 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 only opening and editing the existing filter selections. For more information on presentation mode, see Viewing Streamlined Content.
