We have some users that are using Participant licenses that need to be able to see information about submissions of certain forms. They don't need access to the Laserfiche client, just information in reports in Forms. It would be great if we could create reports and then assign access for those users to view them.
In an upcoming release, Laserfiche will announce new "Process User" licenses which will give users full licensed access to Forms and read-only access to the repository. This includes reporting in Forms and will be priced more reasonably than a full named user license.
Also, Forms will be implementing a new process-level security role to give a user access to reports for a given process without granting full administrative/design rights to that process. As a Forms administrator, you may want to give reporting access to a process without giving that user full design rights to it as well.
This post will be updated with more details about the release schedule in the coming months.
I totally agree on the need to make reports available to participant users. Access to reports is not a management function. Tks!
This would be a very helpful feature for our participant licensed users.
I agree! Allow us to share reports with participant users as needed.
Any updates to this request?
When questions like these pop back up. Original question asked nine years ago, Laserfiche hints solution is in the works six years ago.
The easiest solution would have been to change participant licenses as asked.
Participant users are designed to participant in the process, start process, take action in process. They are not designed for manage the process. So by design they will not be able to access reports.
