Refresh on demand for viewer role. Is it possible?

I have a pro admin account and a pro end user account. The admin shares the workspace (report and dataset) with the end user. The role of the end user is set as viewer and the user is also allowed to create own/new reports using the dataset.


Is there a way to allow the user to refresh the dataset "on demand" but in the same time not allow him to edit the report (view only)? 


Please help.

Hi @Kaatiiaa ,

So far, to my knowledge, this cannot be achieved.

If you give the user "Viewer" role in the workspace, he could only View and interact with an item.
