Sharing cards with non-board members? Edited

I'm building a Trello board with a Realtor. Each card represents a listing that he represents. His board, to protect his listings, is set to private. He'd like to be able to send a link to each listing card to the current owners so they can follow their progress--but since the board is private, they would need to have a Trello account and be added to his board (upping the monthly Enterprise cost). Plus, from what I can tell, the link to the card allows them to access the entire board instead of simply their card.

Is there any way to allow someone to receive a link to only see updates on a specific card from a board--nothing else? Essentially I want them to be an Observer to a card not an Observer to a Board

@Matthew Rubin there's no "card observer", however you might like to use this thing I created called BenkoDesk that would allow you to send email updates to the client directly from the card:

and also this powerup that does something similar:

You could also print the card as a PDF and email it to the client.


We have just released Hipporello for this purpose.

You can use Hipporello to enable your external users and customers to create cards on your board externally. You can use Hipporello automation rules to automatically send an email when the card created, or send a resolved email when the card is archived, etc.


- You can embed hipporello forms to any static website easily

your customers can submit their requests through service desk portal

- they can directly send an email to Hipporello's email-to-board address and Hipporello creates a card

- You can forward messages received from your sales@, jobs@ to Hipporello's email-to-board address and Hipporello creates a Trello card

Basically, Hipporello connects your customers and employees to your support, IT & business teams by creating Trello cards via online forms and inbound emails. It turns your board into an easy to use service desk
