Re: User permissions - view visuals specific Org unit and not children


Dear Scott,

The only workaround is if the users have access to dashboards only and not
access to analytics tools where the objects are created so as not to be
able to drill down.

Otherwise once you grant access to the parent orgunit then they will have
access to children orgunits and this is the power of DHIS2 that you can
drill down especially when conducting data error and issues checks.
