How can I restrict (with editor access) users from being able to modify a dataset?

How can I restrict (with editor access) users from being able to modify a dataset?

Specifically want to make sure that they are not adding beastmodes, changing global color schemes or doing similar things that could impact our "sanctioned" dashboards.

Thank you

    I believe there are two different ways that you can accomplish this.

    1. On the card level, when you first click into a card to view it, you should see the following box in the bottom left. As long as the editor user isn't the owner, this should keep them from making changes.

    2. The second option is on the page level. At the top of the page, you can lock the entire page to enable similar restrictions.

    Hope this helps!

  • Unfortunately this is only a partial solution.

    We've found that people are able to create copies of the cards, save those and then go in and alter beast modes, which affects the base data set and can affect the original cards.

    For example

    I have a locked page with a locked card on financials.

    An editor can copy that card and then edit my beastmodes on profitibility.

    Those changes now reflect in the main cards even though they were locked.

    Is there any way to lock down the dataset it's self?

    Not sure how to manage this risk.

    Thanks
