Card Level Permissions

Is Trello any closer to implementing card level permissions?   I am needed to limit what cards certain users see and/ or are able to edit.  I would like to limit people being able to seeing only cards they are assigned too. 


I know similar questions have been repeatedly asked since 2017.  And I see Atlassian's response re always "we are working on this to bring it to fruition"  but I have not seen or hard of any movement on this feature.... Any hope?


Thank you!

Hi Reis,

Thanks for writing to us!

I think our blog post here explains why we don't have this feature really well:

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.
