Summary:
If two users having identical permissions are running the same Time report, it is not possible to allow one user to be able to see the Timeoff or Timesheet comments while the other should not. Timeoff or Timesheet comments or any particular field in reports, cannot be set to viewable/not view-able for specific permissions.

Workaround:

  • A permission can be modified to have the associated users not access the report settings.
  • Disable Edit Report Settings options in Reports section under Reports tab of the permission.
  • Disable the Comments field for the reports accessible to the permission.
  • Thus the user with that specific permission can see the data of the enabled fields only.
  • However, it is advised to create a new permission based on the existing permission, and then make the changes to the new permission.
