Restrict user group to modify reports

Hi guys

I have a folder hierarchy in BO CMC as

top folder: Sales
Sub folder 1: Sales Ops
Sub folder 2: Sales account managers

we have a team of power users who publish the reports they create to this top folder 'Sales' .

The problem is all those people who belong to 'Sales' group can modify the reports in that sales folder and change the input controls ..each time it happens, the power users have to re-set the filters. They want us to deny people the rights to modify any reports saved in this folder.

How do I make that happen?

    1) Put your power users in a new group (ex. "Sales Power Users"). It's ok if they are in the existing group as well.

    2) On the Sales folder, add the Sales Power Users group with Full Control.

    3) Change the access of the existing Sales group from Full Control to View on Demand

    Use the View on Demand access level, so they cannot modify or create the reports on the folder. They can only refresh the reports.
