Hello there. Our team board has two admins, which I am one.

If I create a "Private" board, can the other admin see, access this board?


Thanks in advance.

Yes, in the admin interface, they can see that the board exists, as they may need to administrate it.

They do not get access to use it unless the permissions for it explicitly inclues them though.  Just because they're an admin doesn't mean they should see a board when they're using the system as though they're a standard user.

Can they add themselves to the board, or would I have to do that? Would I be notified, would I need to accept?

Are all private boards, private for that specific user is what I'm asking?


Thank you for your help and reply.
