Is there a way with the Transaction Analysis module to let standard users see the transaction data without giving them write access to the Actuals version?
If transactions are enabled in your model, there is an additional permission called Access Transactions. This permission allows a user to drill into transaction detail. You do not need to give them access to the Actuals version. You just need to make sure Actuals are visible in a planning version so that the user can drill into the detail.
