I seem to be a guest on my own board and it's causing issues.

Deleted user Jan 11, 2022

I recently installed the Dashcards Power-Up and don't seem to be able to use it. I get a notice saying "Workspace members only. Only workspace members can create Dashcards."


Also, there's a notice at the bottom left corner of my window saying "You are a guest on these boards. To see other boards and members in this Workspace, an admin must add you as a Workspace member."

I'm confused as I am the one who created this board and I'm listed as an Admin. Any idea what's going on?

Hi John,

I work in the Dashcards team. Can you please contact me at letting me know your Trello username and the name of the workspace where you're trying to create a Dashcard but can't?

Not sure I'm listed as a guest on my own boards. Can you help?

Hi John,

I just replied to your email. From my initial investigation, it looks like even though the workspace is called John's Trello Workspace, it wasn't created by you but by someone else who may have named the workspace after you. Workspace display names are not reserved (imagine how many users named John out there!) Do you recall creating this workspace yourself?
