Can visitors edit my filter on table?

I always create a different page in the notion that I call the client area, in this area I put some important information for the monitoring of the project.

I create this area by pulling information from my team's area, with the complete data of all my clients and, for each one of them, I filter by their name. This makes my management a lot easier, because everything my team does, my client has access to the task status and other important information.

At first I thought the rating and filter would be blocked if I shared for viewing only, but recently I've verified that my clients can edit the filter and rating.

How can I block the database filter for my customers' views? Because I wouldn't want my customers to have access to other customers' data. Or is there a better solution?

Thank you for your help.

Add your clients without editing permissions. They will not be able to change the filters that way.

You can create any number of Notion views for each one of them and they will only see what you are sharing, but again, without editing permissions.

That doesn't work, sharing for web specifically, always shows the sort and filter controls

Sharing to web and adding someone to the page are totally different things.

If you share to web you are sharing to anyone in the world, if you add them by email to the page, you are granting access just for them and that is what you are looking for.

so you're saying given access to certain people disables the controls? but to the web it does not? that kind of sounds illogical, is it so?

When you share to web you can't have permissions, it is public. When you add someone to the page by email, you can assign permissions as needed, that is the difference here.

exactly so, no permissions, yet web users have a little more than the poor email invitee :) So not sure, is this by design or an oversight?

It seems you are looking to add people to your page, not sharing it on the web.

Web Share: No permissions, just see.
Add People by email: Permissions set by you.

If you visit your own link you will have your permissions, but if anyone anonymous in the web visit the page, they will not have permissions to modify anything.

That's what we are reporting (I guess, may be not, now that I read the question again), web users who are not logged in, and have the link can see the filters and change them. I'm pretty sure because I used a different browser to see the page. Should that be submitted as a separate question?
