Observers able to move?

Michael Dougherty July 19, 2023

Our lists are populated by cards that only members of the workspace are able to move. There is one observer account that is used by other people but the permissions are set so they are only able to look at the boards. Yesterday a card was moved by the observer account which does not have permission to do that. How is that possible? I have it set so only members are able to move cards, but somehow the observer with no permissions in regard to moving/changing cards moved a card to a different list

Hi @Michael Dougherty , Could you navigate to the board where the card was moved and click "Share" in the board header. Then can you confirm that you see "Observer" next to the Observer members name in the Share menu?

If you do see Observer here next to the members name, our team may need to take a closer look. In that case could you reach out at
