A PDWare user with administrator rights can create OBS node based filters for most lists that can be configured in PDWare Portfolio. For example, in the screen shot below a manager in the Life Sciences department will see the Available Items only.
To set up a node list filter, select menu Admin > Edit Node List Filters. Select an OBS type (Project or Resource). Select the OBS node to be restricted. Select a Field (list) to be constrained. Highlight list items in the available items list that do not apply to the selected node and move them to the Filtered Items box with the arrow button.
List items that are filtered in a parent node are filtered in all children. Child nodes can have additional restrictions that further limit the list when they are the target node.
