    my request is to provide the option to show or hide the left sidebar through configuration changes (similar to what TM1web has). as the customer is requesting to hide the left side for a certain set of users.

    This idea is not under consideration. Providing users view only access to a Workspace book, instead of a plan or application, already provides an experience without a left side bar. It's necessary to have some method to navigate to other books in the same plan or application.

    The contribution panel can be minimized by the users if they need more space to interact with content.
