Change Board Member to Guest

MegK3 January 10, 2019

I invited a client to a board and then added the client as a member.  However, I now realize I want that individual as a guest only.  How can a change a board member to a guest without having to resend the invitation?

To clarify, I have a team called Client where I want all my clients as guests so I can invite them to the appropriate board.  I added one as a team member, which I want to change to guest.  How can I keep that person on the board, but change him from a team member to a guest in the client team?

I figured it out.  If you go to the team>members and select remove member, it will automatically make that person a guest, and it keeps the person on the board to which he/she was invited.

Not true.  I added my personal email to the team and then removed them.  Gone from team and not added to guests.  We are using the business plan edition if that makes any difference.

I experienced the same thing. The user was completely deleted. Anyone else figure this out?

I don't seem to be able to change it at all......frustrating. We use premium and I have 7 members on the board. Costs way too much so I want to change some to guests because they should not be members. I can't figure it out.

I want to understand the same thing.  How to move a Member of a board to Guest status.


It appears the member has to be completely removed then reinvited as a guest.


Can anyone confirm this or is there another solution?

I just tested the accepted solution and it worked for me, as long as the member I removed belonged to a board. It's important that they only belong to one board in the workspace, or they might become a "multi-board guest" which is billed the same as a member.
