I would like to add observers to my board, but by providing them a board link. Possible?

We want to use Trello to publish our public roadmap, but don't feel comfortable by having Google index the board. 


As an alternative, we are looking into using a closed Trello board, where we can have our customers on as observers. Now inviting every customer separately is quite a task, so it would be great if we can just provide them a link, by which they will be added to the board as an observer. 

Anybody knows if this is something Trello is looking into? Or Alternative solutions to my problem?

Hey Christoph

I agree, having to add a large number of observers is painful, however there's not currently aw workaround. You can still invite users to the board using a link, but then you'd have to go in and change each permission to observer manually.  I suggest submitting this as a feature request. 

Hey, anyone know if there's an update on this?
