User permissions - view visuals specific Org unit and not children


Dear All

We have created a dashboard for every country that we are working in. Some
of these countries have granted us permission to share their data publicly,
but only the aggregated data collected at the national level (i.e. not the
children such as provinces/districts as this must remain confidential for
the country).

We have created users by Org unit and assigned the relevant users to their
own org unit. In addition, on the dashboards, we have enabled "Public
access" option with a view only status so that all users can see that
dashboard. However, the data on the dashboard of other countries is not
viewable as permission has not been granted in their user status.

The problem comes in when you grant permission under User - if you enable
access to the other countries under the "Data output and analysis
organisation units" section, then all of the children of those Org units
are selected with no option to only select a certain Org Unit level.

Is there some sort of way around this so that other countries can only see
the visuals on each other's dashboards? (All of the visuals on the country
dashboards are aggregated national level data).

I hope that this makes sense.

Your help would be appreciated.

Kind regards,
