    Building a new application - when do you implement security?

    John-Paul Della Putta

      Hi all,

      I am very new to QV.

      I have been reviewing the forums, but just wondering if some experienced users could shed some light.

      My customer has 40 deparments and 40 deparment managers. Each department manger needs to see only their data (sales & expenses) and the benchmark average of all deparments.

      We are using community server, so section access is what I am expecting to use to restrict data.

      My quesiton is should I start off by implementing security, or should I build a open model to begin with and when the corporate head office is happy with the design, then introduce the security?

      Also, would perhaps set analysis be secure enough to restrcit the data set based on the user logged in?

      Thanks in advance, Jp.
