What does ""Your permission level does not allow you to overwrite this report."" mean?

    I'm running across this error with users in one of my apps and I can't figure out why. The error is: 
    "Your permission level does not allow you to overwrite this report."

    Users are getting this error when selecting a pre-made report, selecting 'customize', editing it, then attempting to save it.

    In another app I have, users can follow these exact same steps and save the report as a personal report. The permissions and UI options for the roles are identical as far as I can tell and so are the settings on the different reports themselves. I'm an administrator in both apps as well. 

    How can I allow for users to select a report, customize it, then save their changes to the default one as a personal report?

    It sounds like A Quick Base bug, but an untested guess is maybe it does not like the report being saved with the same name as the original report.

    In the Role-based settings, there's an option on the 1st tab (Permissions) for each Role for Save Common Reports. If that is unchecked, it means the users can only create personal reports which is, I think, what you are after. If it is checked, they can mess with your common "template" reports and overwrite them or create new ones.
