Showing exclusive data to row owners


I am working on an application and am having trouble managing the viewership of data.

The goal is to have two tabs that are common to all users. I have accomplished this so far. The issue I am having is that I am not able to change the viewership of data on one of the components in a tab.

In one of the tabs, I would like to have a chart “component” that shows different numerical data for a different users. I believe this would require some combination of either:

  1. Row Owners
  2. Computed Columns
  3. User Specific Columns, or
  4. Separate Data tables managed for each user

So far, I’ve tried to:

  • Create a new table that uses email addresses (as row owners) and then create user specific columns for the data. This did not work. The data that shows on my chart is still incorrect when i do this. I believe the error may be because I am not accurately representing the users in this new table, but I may be wrong.
  • Adding all of the data to a table unique to each user table but this hasn’t worked as well.

Does anyone have any tips? Any help you can offer would be appreciated!

I would keep all your data in a single table. If you have Row Owners applied (and correctly setup), then that’s probably all you need for your charts.

Alternatively, you should be able to get per-user charts without row owners by simply applying a filter to your chart data.

If you’re still struggling, a screen shot or two that shows how you have your tables setup would be useful.
