We are working on a portal that will be for all multiple clients we have, of course none of them use the same vendors to collect data so I will have information from some of them that I don't have for others, (sigh). What we would like to do is render reports based on who you are, so if I had 4 reports on tab 1 of a portal I could render the all the reports for one client but only three for the rest of them. I would like to figure out some way to do this other than what I am thinking of which is to render an empty report with a message that says " you do not have the data to support this report." Cause that would just cause a ton of questions and issues...... Does anyone have any idea if something like this has been done elsewhere or how I could go about doing this?This message has been edited. Last edited by: <Emily McAllister>,
Another option you might want to explore, is if you don't give access to a report for a user, how does the portal handle it? Will it not include it and adjust the frames accordingly? I haven't tried this with portals as I generally will handle the logic myself for situations like this, but that is somewhere I would try if I wanted to leverage the tool more for things like this.
