I use Trello with uni.students, for PBL-projects. My question is: why do members of a board have different statuses on the "Board Members"-tab? And do these different statuses have any effect on how the board works for each student? I mean, does it affect their permissions and access to certain functions, or is there some difference in the experience of use? Since I don't have access to the student's computers, this is not something I can check by myself, and since some students are complaining about difficulties in using the board, I am trying to see if this might be the problem
The creation of the team this way: I ask for their email on the first encounter. Then I create a new board for the class from a template I have. Then I invite the students to the board by clicking the "invite" button and adding their email addresses.
I attach a screenshot of the "Board members" pane in question.
I would be thankful to anyone who could enlighten me on this topic.

Hi @Daniel Mario Olsson I found this information that you may find useful.
When it comes to permissions on a board, there are different types of Trello users:
So ultimately the invited members are those that still need to go into their email when they set up there account to confirm their trello account.
As for guests, A guest is someone who is on a board, but not on the Trello team that owns thatboard. Guests can only see the Trello board to which they are invited; they can't see any other team boards. A board member who is on one team board is a Single-Board Guest of that team. Do you happen to have additional boards that the "team members" would also have access to (now or for a previous class?)
Here is an article that talks about the permissions and access.
Please let me know if this information answers your questions.
Thanks and have a good day,
