Specific column privacy settings

Please help me figure this out.
I am an administrator of boards with premium package.
There are 3 different projects (3 boards), each project consists of 10 employees.
On the board of the project number 1 I have 1 column for each employee, the task is that the employee can see only my column and tasks on the board. Can you please tell me how to realize my need without creating a separate board for each employee?

Hi @Владислав 


Trello is an open team collaboration tool and therefore unlike many other software, the options to restrict access are fairly limited. I personally see this as a good thing as I am a strong advocate for transparency within business but I can also see use cases where it would be important to restrict information.


Can you explain what is the reason for wanting to restrict? 

Do you:

  1. Want the employees not to have access or visibility to certain lists at all? or
  2. You want to ensure they are focused on the tasks they need to do 

If option 2, you can use filters to make sure employees are only seeing the things relevant to them. Once a filter is applied by someone, it remains persistent until they clear it so they can open up to their filtered view when they go to Trello each day: 


If Option 1, it is trickier.  There are 3rd party browser extensions to hide or minimize lists, none of which I have ever enjoyed using and if you are a business, you have to ensure that each employee has the extension installed and active to work.  

The other option, as you said is to have a separate board to restrict data and you can use Trello automation to do some mirroring or take away some of the manual lifting of this option.  See my response to this question:
