Who in my organization needs an AvSight license?
A user needs an AvSight license if they want to see, enter, or report on AvSight data objects. For example, if a user wants to enter a PO, ship an order, or run a report on AvSight data, they would need a license.
Is a read only option for users?
Yes. You are able to make any AvSight user a read only user, but this does not change the price of the license. All user licenses are named licenses and provide full access to the features listed. You can restrict the features, tabs, buttons, and fields for any user via Salesforce security profiles and permission sets.
