Hide names of previous team members from boards and also of current ones from each other


I am doing a trial with 4 employees currently and need to make sure that they are all kept separate (so they shouldn't know the names/contact details of the other trial participants, nor the previous users of the boards).

What's the best way to do this? Should I create 4 separate copies of the same board and give access to one each? Would they still be able to see each other's name in the team overview? Also I see in the individual cards there are entries for a previous staff. Is there a way to remove those? Not sure if that name also appears in other places.


Thanks in advance.

Hi there,

In order to keep these members completely separate, you would want to have a board dedicated for each of them. That way they can only see the content of that board they are a member of. As long as they aren't a member of your Trello team, they won't be able to see anything else.

Regarding the card history, there won't be way to remove a specific action that occurred from a previous member. So instead you'll want to either create a new board for each new trial member, or delete the cards on those boards.
