Restrict access to public Boards

While private Boards are visible only to their creator, public Boards are visible to the entire organization - unless you restrict access to certain people.

You might want to restrict access to a public Board if, for instance, you want everyone on your team to be able to see it, but not anyone from a different department.

 

Who can restrict access to a Board?

  • Any of the Board's Owners who have the "Restricted Board Administrator"

  • Anyone with the "Global Board Administrator" permission

 

How do I restrict the viewers of a public Board?

Either start creating a new Board or editing an existing Board, then:

  • In the "Create Board" or "Edit Board" window (whichever is applicable), make sure that "Make Public?" is checked. If it's not, check it now.

  • Public Boards are visible to the entire organization unless you restrict their visibility. To limit the visibility of this Board to specific people, everyone with a certain Role, or everyone in a Network Location, enter those qualifiers in the "Restrict Viewing to" field. To remove an individual, Role, or Location’s access to the Board, delete their name from this field.

    NOTE: Global Board Administrators can access any public Board so long as they have a direct link to it, regardless of whether they're included in this field.
