Changing project board visibility

As an organization owner or project board admin, you can make a project board internal or private.

By default, user-owned and organization-wide project boards are private and only visible to people with read, write, or admin permissions to the project board. An internal project board is visible to any with access to your enterprise with the project board's URL. Repository-level project boards share the visibility of their repository. That is, a private repository will have a private project, and this visibility cannot be changed.

Note: When you make your project board internal, organization members are given read access by default. You can give specific organization members write or admin permissions by giving access to teams they're on or by adding them to the project board as a collaborator. For more information, see "Project board permissions for an organization."

  1. Navigate to the project board you want to make internal or private.

  2. On the top-right side of the project board, click Menu.
