Custom View Permissions
Before this update, you only had two options: to create a Public or a Private View. The first was accessible for each and every one of the users of your Ganttic account, the second was only accessible for you. Now you can assign users with specific Views with specific Filters, Coloring, Resource Groups, etc. Using the User rights settings, it’s possible to remove all the information that the User does not need and show them only the things they need to see. Less information equals a lesser chance for information overload and getting stuck since there is too much going on.
Must-know about this featureYou can activate one of the following three view modes: Private, Public, Selected Users. The Private mode is obvious – only you can access the View. With the "public" and "selected users" option you can choose whether they can use the View Settings to either add Filters or change other settings to their needs or liking. If you choose to lock the View settings, they can not make any changes other than navigating on the Timeline. If you choose not to lock the View setting, the users can’t permanently overwrite the View settings you have chosen. However, they can make changes on the go. Meaning the changes cannot be saved and if the user is making changes to View settings, the settings won’t be changed for everyone. The Users can still navigate on the Timeline. In addition, the "Selected users" option allows you to choose the Users the settings are applied to. All other Users are not able to access the View.
Only Admin Users are able to access the feature and apply its settings.
