View Permissions

One of the most popular requests we’ve heard from early users has been the ability to limit access to certain views in a worksheet to a specific group of people. Now you can quickly and easily set permissions on any view by using the new View permissions button in the view toolbar, or from the view’s context menus:

View Locking

Another popular request has been the ability to lock certain views so other users cannot change the filters, sorts, hidden columns, and other aspects of the view configuration. Now you can lock a view simply by clicking the new Lock this view button in the view toolbar, or from the view’s context menu:

When a view is locked, other users who are not Owners of the workbook still can open the filters, sorts, hide columns, and other view configuration dialogs, but they cannot make changes:
