How to lock down the columns and progress configuration on Structure Plugin?

We are testing this for a month and would like to use it as our PPM tool. One concern about the progress, based on our testing ,all the columns are still configurable even we only assign view permission to people. Then in that way everyone will see different columns and different progress. Is there any way to lock down the columns and configurations?

Hi Ming Cheng,

As I mentioned on the Marketplace website, by design, there's currentlt no way to restrict users from adding more columns or changing column configuration.

But when a view is not editable, the users can *adjust* what they are seeing, but they will not be able to overwrite the view shared with other people. You can tell that a view is adjusted by spotting a "*" symbol near the view name. You can also revert to the saved view. 

Also, you can use Perspectives to get a URL that always opens in a predefined configuration.

Another option I didn't mention: using Dashboard gadgets. Although technically it's still possible to change the columns, it's less obvious in the gadget.

 

Hope this helps!

Igor
