Exclude a group of users from Section Access

Hello everybody,

is it possible to exclude a group of users from Section Access in one single application?

We want to grant access by using the sales manager ID but there is some data in our application where is no sales manager ID assigned. To prevent these data from getting lost due to Section Access we want to exclude some users from the security to let them have access to all data. We don't want to maintain two parallel apps.

Does anybody have an idea how to manage?

Once you apply section access, it applies for all users and all data in the application.

What you can do is to assign these users all possible values in the section access table, if Manager ID is the reduction field and there are no values in some cases, and such values must be available for some or all users, I would rather create a value in the script to handle such nulls with actual values instead, and use this field for the reduction.
