As the creator and admin for a specific board, i do not want my board users, whether guests or team members, to mess with the board layout, or rearrange lists, or change board colours, or archive tickets.
Users should simply be able to edit and move tickets that have been assigned to them...nothing else!
I think i saw somewhere that this is not possible in Trello, yet SmartQ has had it for years. Problem is that Trello has other features that we like and that SmartQ does not have.
Surely users of a kanban board should not all have the right to rearrange columns whenever they feel like it????
@Barend Strydom You are right that intra board permissions had has always been an issue especially when you have some automation in it. In the absence it may have to a change management exercise perhaps through education. While I have not been involved in using Trello in an enterprise , I had to manage similar projects of this kind in the past. From a programming perspective, there are parts of the architecture I came to realise that remain unchanged or well managed ... like IDs and short_url. Trello also does well to report changes. I have done some investigation to restrict movement of card unless it is by the admin... basically use the data to reinstate the card status.
If it was as simple as education and mature cooperation, then we might as well have used a shared spreadsheet and asked everyone to please not freeze, hide, sort or delete columns...and we all know how that usually works out. It only takes one person to mess with the equilibrium.
But what absolutely confounds me, is that I'm the only one that appears to consider this an important feature. Surely it can't be!!!
See it’s funny you mention that because that’s exactly why I use trello - because I don’t have those same problems I had with spreadsheets. Once I taught everyone filters on trello boards and the fact it doesn’t do they globally but only for that persons view, it was a game changer. Maybe try mentioning that aspect? They can just use the “q” shortcut to see their cards, and that will hopefully eliminate any need for them to change anything that isn’t theirs.
