Application privileges control whether a user has access to certain application functionality, such as using the toolbar or context menu while working with dashboards and other views.
Dundas BI administrators can allow or deny application privileges when creating or editing a user account or group. In most cases, when a privilege is denied, it means the user can no longer see or access the corresponding user interface element (such as the toolbar, button, menu, or menu item). In addition, a denied privilege also means the user cannot exit or escape out of the related user interface mode. For example, if the Full Screen privilege is denied for a user, and that user receives a link to a full screen dashboard, then the user will not be able to exit full screen mode while viewing the dashboard.
Note that administrators have all privileges and cannot be denied any specific privilege.

3.1. Grant the Share privilege to all users
The example shown is using the Everyone group, but the same concept applies to any other group.
On the Group Details screen, set the Share privilege to Allow.
Accounts or groups that are members of this group have the Share privilege allowed, and this is non-editable as it is inherited from the group.
In the same manner, set the account or group Share privilege to Deny to prevent them from seeing the related option.
