Only the people participating in a private Project or those people with the “Private Administrator” permission are able to see it. Those people who do not meet either of those requirements will be unable to:
- See the Project’s title, Attributes, or other descriptive fields.
- View its data and charts.
- Access its links and attachments.
- See any other details about the Project.
This keeps any privileged information from becoming general knowledge, while still allowing it to be entered into KaiNexus. NOTE: Any new Projects or Improvements nested under this Project will automatically be made private, although they can be made public.
A private Project’s impact data are still recorded in the organization’s metrics, but uninvolved people will not be able to access the Project from any Reports. The Project will also be counted towards the total number of Projects in its parent Project - if there is one - but, again, it cannot be seen or accessed by non-team members through any lists.
NOTE: Because private Projects are, well, private, neither your organization’s administrators nor KaiNexus Support will be able to help you with them unless they are added to the Project’s team or have the “Private Administrator” permission as part of one or more of their Roles.
How do I make a Project private?
NOTE: Only users with the “Private” permission as part of one or more of their Roles will see the following options.
- “Make Private” - The Project will be made private so that only its team can access it.
- “Allow Project Team to see the nested private Improvements in this Project” - This Project’s team will be able to access any nested private Improvement, regardless of whether they are on that Improvement’s team.
- “Allow Project Team to see the nested private Projects in this Project” - This Project’s team will be able to access any nested private Project, regardless of whether they are on that Project’s team.
