Restricting Visibility to CRM Reports
There are five types of report-related access you can control:
a.. Who can export data to Microsoft Office Excel.
b.. Who can add, delete, rename, and upload reports, and modify report
properties and default filters.
c.. Which data each user can see. Because the data in each report is based
on the user's security role, make sure each user has the correct security
d.. Where reports are displayed in Microsoft CRM. By default, all reports
are visible in the Reports area, reports related to a record type are
visible from the area for the record type, and reports that can be run from
a record are available from the record. To reduce the possibility of users
running reports that are not relevant to their jobs, you can remove each
report from the Reports area.
e.. If the Microsoft CRM 3.0 Report Scheduling Wizard is installed, each
user who creates a snapshot definition can control who has access to
snapshots created with that snapshot definition.
Control who can manage reports Required security role
This task requires the System Administrator security role ( A defined
set of access privileges. The security role assigned to a user determines
which tasks the user can perform and which parts of the user interface the
user can view. All users must be assigned at least one security role in
order to access the system. ) .
To manage reports, a user must have the Microsoft CRM Manage Reports
privilege. By default, this privilege is assigned to the Microsoft CRM
System Administrator and System Customizer security roles.
If you have one user who needs Manage Reports privilege, you can create a
new security role with Manage Reports privilege and assign the new security
role to the user. If you have a group of users who share an existing
security role who need Manage Reports privilege, you can assign the
privilege to an existing security role.
Add the Manage Reports privilege to an existing Microsoft CRM

2.. In the Settings area, click Business Unit Settings, and then

Reports privilege from None Selected to Organization .
