Single Board Guests

I have read every thread on this subject and it is absolutely unclear how this works. 

To wit: I have read that any member that has been added to only ONE board is automatically a GUEST and will NOT add to be BC billing. 

And yet...when I add a single board member

I am being billed for this additional member, despite only being on one board

Why has Trello (Atlassian) made this process to difficult and opaque?


Also, help?

The member in your screenshot was added to workspace, so they are not a "guest", they're a full workspace member, and are billable as such.

If you just remove them from the workspace (not the board), they will be a single board guest, and no longer billable.

so that worked. 

but when I tried to add him just tot he board, and not the workspace, I got this:

thanks for the quick reply!


UPDATE: I had attached the wrong screenshot in the original post!

I’m not 100% certain but I think by default this should work but maybe on the settings page for the workspace, the setting was changed that allows this: see the settings tab

Like robodean likes this

Yup, that was the culprit.

"Inviting guests to boards" was set to workplace members.


Many Many Thanks!
