on 1/8/14, 4:11 AM 1,546 views

Hi I need to disable the export option for some users. I tired in Human resources/employee group by removing write and create access of ir.exports & ir.exports.line. When I logged in particular user it shows error " access denied " but I can able to export the products.So kindly provide the solution ASAP.

Thanks & Regards Sakthivel P

You cannot directly hide export button.To hide export you need to override related js file and add some code. Or inherit related template and hide it...


HI Pinakin, Thanks for your info. based on your answer we can hide export option for all users but I need to hide this export option for particular users alone. whether it can be possible?

Thanks sakthivel
