What's the best way to ensure that filter created in a report and which is saved in Public folder for other users to access stay locked.
Idea is to have other users access the report but not modify the filter. Current filter settings (locking) is only applicable to that particular session, hence the question.
The application is not specified so I am assuming you are referring to Spend Performance Management.
In SPM, if the reports are in the public folder they are free for all, all operations allowed. Thats the whole point of public folders. In your case you can try to make the Group folder concept work for you where you, as a owner of the folder, has more control.
