Understanding project types

Choosing the Right Project Type in Anywhere

In Anywhere, selecting the appropriate project type determines who can access and interact with the projects you create. There are three distinct project types available:

Public Projects: These projects are accessible to all members within your organization. Anyone in your organization can view project details and actively participate in these projects.

Private Projects: Private projects are exclusively accessible to the project owner and individuals invited by the owner. By default, the person who creates a project becomes its owner and can extend invitations to other team members for collaborative work. Only those who are part of a private project can access and work on it.

Shared Projects: Shared projects share similarities with private projects but introduce an additional feature. In shared projects, a board owner has the ability to invite both team members and external guests, such as clients, to collaborate. Guests can only see the projects to which they've been personally invited.

You have the option to set the project's access level when creating a new board, as illustrated below:

However, it's important to note that the access level of an existing board can be updated in only three specific ways:

- From Public to Private
- From Public to Shared
- From Private to Shared

Conversely, private or shared boards cannot be converted into public ones, and shared boards cannot be turned into private boards.

_Note: Sub-projects automatically inherit the access type of their parent project. For instance, if you create a Private project and add a sub-project within it, all sub-projects will also default to Private. It is not possible to alter the access type of sub-projects independently._

Ensuring you select the correct project type is critical in safeguarding your project details and restricting access to only intended team members. We trust this information proves valuable.
