Automatically share the content of the parent dashboard to users and groups added to sub-dashboard

Options

Now when you share a sub-dashboard, Domo shares the parent dashboard with the same users and groups as the shared sub-dashboard, but the content on the parent dashboard is not shared.

It would be useful to automatically share the content of the parent dashboard as well.

    Agreed! The parent page is added to their navigation, but content has the "request access" mask over it which feels sloppy if you forget to permission them to the parent page itself, too

    I think its risky to share the parent app if you share a card. I have an app with gauges, dials, tables, etc. This app is intended for an executive team to see the big picture. Someone in a department may be able to view one of the cards, but that does not mean that person should be able to see the cards out of their department's scope.

    A card might be used independently and shared, but that does not mean the user is automatically assumed to be a user of everything appearing on the app.

    The reverse however, does seem appropriate. If you share the parent app to a user, it's implied that the user should be able to see all the cards on the app.

    Hi Arbor Rose,

    I understand your point, at the same time I think it is misleading that a user is shared on the dashboard (as in fact happens) but not on the cards. There is no way to know what a user can see except by checking individual cards, and with large numbers of users/groups this can be tricky.

    There's the issue to be resolved - there is no way to know what a user sees. There should be a shadow/proxy functionality where an admin can shadow an account to see what they see.

    I would suggest that when an app is shared, a dialog box inquires whether to share all cards rather than it be automatic.
