Is there any way to restrict/allow "export to file" and print by User or Role?

We are restricting all users/roles from exporting and printing because we need to restrict certain users.  We would like the ability to allow some users or roles to export/print but not others.

I think that QuickBase does not currently provide that level of granularity.  I only know of the setting to restrict export to Admin Only.  You would need to put in a User Voice request and hope that others care about it too to give it some votes.  I have seen this question asked before though, so you are not the only one who would like to see this feature added.

You can stop people printing buy hiding print/email links in the role settings. You can also stop people using the import/export by disabling multi-record options (it will not stop them saving a specific report you give them access to, to csv (save as a spreadsheet), but will stop them exporting the entire table).

Even if you did have this it wont stop people as they can copy it from the screen by highlighting the table and pasting it to excel.
Note with printing there is nothing to stop people using screen grabs or printing via the browser.
