Role based Dashboards – CRM 2013

October 26, 2013 1 comment

With the release of  CRM 2011, we got System dashboards/charts and Personal dashboards/charts feature.

Dashboards/charts visibility

  • System charts are like System views, only Users with System Administrator or System Customizer can create and view-able by all users.
  • Personal charts are like Personal views, only visible to User who created them (i.e., Unless the created user shares the personal Dashboard/chart, nobody else can see it, not even a system administrator)

Restrict User to access Dashboards/Charts

  • To restrict users to access System dashboards/Charts
    • Open security role –> Customization tab, set ‘System Chart/System Form’ access level to ‘none’
System charts Access/Privilages

System charts Access/Privileges

    • To restrict users to access Personal dashboards/Charts
      • Open security role –> Core Records tab, set ‘User Chart/User Dashboard’ access level to ‘none’
Personal charts Privileges/Access

Personal charts Privileges/Access

By removing privileges to User, he can’t access any of the Dashboards or Charts in the system.

What if you want to restrict a particular System Dashboard or Chart to all ‘Sales Person’ security role Users but not others? You cannot configure OOB this in CRM 2011 (However you can do this by Plug-ins).

With CRM 2013,  we got a new feature Role based dashboards similar to Role based forms.
