Cause
Power Monitoring Expert allows different levels of access in that a login/password combination is mapped to an access level - observer, user,  operator, controller or supervisor. 
The way the access levels work in Dashboards may not be what is expected.

Resolution
In PME 7.2 and SPM 7.0.1 a supervisor cannot edit/delete any dashboard that was created by another supervisor.
Only the supervisor account that created the dashboard can edit/delete it.

In PME 8.x and all subsequent versions, any supervisor can delete dashboards made by users of any access level. A supervisor cannot modify dashboards created by another user, even if the dashboard was created by a lower level user. Only the owner/creator of the dashboard can modify it.
