Question about board, card and task permissions

My understanding was that I could invite a member into various levels of visibility of my board. For instance, my board is designed to manage a luxury home, so I have lists on that board for: housekeeping, landscaping, household inventories, contractor information, etc. I thought that I could invite the housekeeper, landscaper and handyman onto their respective lists, and that the other lists on the board would not be visible to them.

But when I invited the housekeeper onto the housekeeping list, I found out she was able to see all of the lists.

Am I doing this wrong? Or did I misunderstand the hierarchy of permissions?

You can't limit visibility for board members.  The only restriction you can implement is by changing a members permissions to "observer".  Unfortunately this still allows them to view all the lists and cards on the board, but restricts them from editing or moving cards in any way.

The only way I know of to limit visibility would be to break up the different parts of the household management into separate boards within the workspace, and only invite the relevant members to each board.  Such as having housekeeping on it's own board or say housekeeping and household inventories on the same board if the functions are related.

OK, thanks. That's what I've been doing but thought that it would be more manageable (with less boards) to keep them on one board. Many thanks!
