Board Permissions and Roles

Board roles define what users may do when they open a board in a project or via an invite.

Opening a board from a project

If a user opens a board from a project they are a member of, their board role is determined by their project role and board ownership.

 

Opening a board from an invite

An invitation defines the board role the user will have.

 

 

Board Roles:
Board Host

May control all aspects of a board session, including invites and its flow.

Board Facilitator

Has many of a board host’s capabilities but focused on helping them manage the session and addressing attendee needs.

Board Editor

May edit the board according to what the board host and board facilitator allow.

Board Commentator

May chat, add new comments, or respond to comments, but otherwise may not edit the board.

Board Viewer

May chat but may not comment or edit the board in any manner.

 

Details of each board role’s permissions are listed below:


Owner

If the user is the owner of the action or creation, such as creating a comment, uploading a file, etc., then, if defined, it overrides the board role permission specified.
