Privacy and Sharing

Let's put you in complete control of who sees what, what  permissions  they have, and who gets added to your Workspace.

Important details

  • By default, Folders, Lists, and tasks will be “public” - meaning they're shared with anyone that has access to where they live.
  • All "public" items inherit privacy from their parent. 
  • Spaces  can't be shared with  guests
