Are card level permissions on the roadmap?


Sometimes card level permissions would do a better job than mirrored boards. Is that on the roadmap? To be able to assign teams to each card would be useful in that conjunction.

But also the ability to group boards to see the sum of them and work in them like in a single board would be an alternative. The List view from Trello business is not quite a replacement for the "virtual board" I intend ...

Card level permissions is something we get requests for a lot, but I think the best answer was published in the following blog post about our feature requests:

There’s also an Unlikely list. This is where we put cards related to features that we’re not likely to add any time soon. It doesn’t mean, however, that these features are impossible, and we do still track interest in them so that we can understand those pain points.

So, what makes a feature request unlikely to make the cut? An unlikely feature is one that doesn’t fit with the core vision of Trello, or one that would only appeal to a very small number of users with little longevity or future appeal.

One example of an unlikely request that we hear about a lot is for admins to be able to limit what individual board members can see on a board, so that managed users can only see the cards of which they’re a member. This isn’t a bad idea, and it definitely makes sense for some workflows.

Trello’s aim, however, is to provide groups with a shared perspective. If two people look at the same board, and one isn’t able to see the same thing the other user is seeing, that shared perspective is lost. Because that feature isn’t in line with Trello’s vision, it’s less likely to be prioritized over other features.

We do have the ability to group boards together, this is the Workspace feature, and then for upgraded workspaces, we have the Collections feature. We then have the Table View feature for viewing multiple boards at once.
