Shared Reports with Calculated Fields

Reports that include calculated fields can be shared. The field appears in the report table and can be seen by all shared users, regardless of whether the field is a global field. See View Global Calculated Fields.

However, the following rules apply to the visibility of calculated field data in the report:

  1. Users can only view calculated field data if they have permission to view the report fields that are used in the calculated field.
  2. Users can only view the calculated field data that is within their permission constraints.

If Shared users have edit permissions for the report they can remove a calculated field from the report, even if the field is not a global field.

Calculated fields that are not global fields are not visible to shared users in the Calculated Fields > My Fields section. See View My Calculated Fields.
