  6. Keep some Ideas private, but your board public

    New Feature
    hide

    You can now keep certain ideas private to just you and your teammates. Simply hit the "Make Private" button in the admin panel, or turn on the toggle when adding an idea yourself.

    This is great for ideas you want to discuss internally but keep on the same board. You can view all private Ideas. You can make the Idea public when you are ready.

    Private Ideas are part of the Privacy Add-on.

    Thanks for the feature request Mark!
