SAP BI 4.1 SP1- Users unable to edit reports in favorites and Inbox


We have installed SAP BI 4.1 SP1 in our environment.The installation was successful.

I have created a new group " test" and added few users to this group. I have given View on Demand,Schedule,View access level permissions to this "test" group in the Root folder(Manage > Top Level Security > All Folders)

Users are able to copy the reports to their favorites folder but they are unable to modify them. Modify option appears but on click on it the report again opens in the reading mode not in the design mode.

Please let me know what others permissions is required for the user to edit the reports in the favorites and Inbox.

You should provide access on web intelligence application.

Right name: Web intelligence application >reporting-enable formatting

I hope it will allow you to modify the report(Design mode)

Thanks & regards,
