Using a Business-Class account, I run an online course where each student is assigned their own personal card.
I'd like for each student to be able to edit, attach and comment on their own card PLUS a dedicated community card. Students do not need to be able to create cards but I don't mind if they can.
I'd also like to have some cards and lists that only I (the teacher) can edit.
Is there ANY way to add this functionality? Power-ups? Custom code?
Hi @Rich Blundell,
Currently, Trello doesn't support per-card permissions—once someone has access to a board, they'll be able to see and edit all cards on it.
For now, we suggest creating separate boards for different permissions levels, or in your case, for students.
In the meantime, I'll definitely share your interest in this with our team for consideration at least!
Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns, and have a great day.
I understand that Trello does not currently support this kind of functionality.
The question is, will it be possible to develop (or find) a power-up the could serve as a workaround?
Or is there some server-side architectural reason that makes a custom power-up impossible.?
If it is technically possible, I will pursue it, if it’s fundamentally not possible to code a solution, I’ll drop it.
I know that Trello does not currently support card-level permissions.
However, creating a unique board for each student will not work. I have also tried several card syncing approaches that will not work. I simply need to be able to restrict editing and moving to a student's personal card only.
The question is:
Can this problem be solved by creating a custom power-up or is it impossible due to server-side, API-level limitations?
If it is possible, where can I find and hire a developer who can help with this?
Sorry for my delayed response. This could be done in theory, but it likely would be a very unreliable implementation, and we'd honestly recommend against it. As for how that custom pup could be created, or where to find and hire a dev to assist with that, I'm afraid that is out of our scope of support.
I apologize that I can't provide more guidance here.
Please let me know if this raises additional questions or concerns.
@marc -Collabello--Phase Locked- That's intriguing to hear. Could you provide some details about what your workaround will do and how it will work? When will it be ready?
I like Trello, but having exhausted all other options for this functionality, I likely be forced to use a different platform.
I also feel that card level permissions would be extremely helpful. As a small non-profit that cannot afford a project manager, and in an organization where we would like to have a single board to serve as a project charter and pulse of the organization- this would be very helpful. It would also be extremely helpful in setting up and managing reporting.
This is also what im trying to do but in a Business application.
Where I want my lower tier employees (delivery guy, product packagers) to attach a proof of work. (photos) to the card they were assigned.
I believe this should be added to the business plan features of trello.
A permission where 'only allow attachment to a card they are assigned."
