Initial selection based on user

Hi all,

I'd like to know if it is possible to apply a selection depending on the user who access the application through QVS ?

For example, a product line manager would query by default his products (but I want him be able to see other products. That's why I don't want to reduce data with section access).

Thank you for your help.

Re: Initial selection based on user

Hi Guillaume,

Although section access may do, since you can check the "Initial selection based on" instead of "Initial data reduction", I'd rather create several bookmarks in the document so any user can easily track his products, or clear the selection and see the whole chart or make new selections. Document wise bookmarks are available to all users, and you can apply them using a customized URL

http://ServerName/QvAJAXZfc/opendoc.htm?Document=DocName.qvw&select=Document\BookmarkName

If your server is Enterprise Edition enabled, users can create their own bookmarks, so you don't have to take care of this task.

Hope that helps.
