How do I create board permissions or restrictions?

Board permissions or restrictions are meant to give the owner of the board the option to control what information can be changed on a board. This way, the structure of your board can't be rearranged and your columns won't be accidentally deleted.  This is especially helpful if you are using shareable boards and have external guests invited to these boards and you want to make sure that they are only able to do certain things.  


There are 3 different settings for board permissions, you can find these options in the Hamburger Screen_Shot_2018-03-29_at_12.06.14.png menu:

1. The default is set to 'Everyone can change" which means that everyone that is subscribed to the board is able to change the structure of the board, add new pulses, edit column names, change statuses, and create pulse updates.  

If you are a board owner, you are are able to change the default to: 

2. Everyone can edit content, owners can change the structure: This permission allows non-board owners to add pulses, change statuses and cells on the board, and create pulse updates, but are not able to edit the group or column titles or rearrange the structure of the board. This setting is great for when you want to collaborate on a project with an external guest on a shareable board, but want to make sure that a column won't accidentally be deleted or rearranged. 

3. Only owners can change: Non-board owners are only able to create pulse updates with this permission and are not able to do anything else. This setting is really helpful when you want a customer to be able to view a shareable board so you are able to keep them up to date on the progress of the project!
