There are two primary types of project access and visibility:
Only project members can view this project
Anyone can view this project (i.e., 'Public' project setting)
Hive projects can only be viewed and accessed by those that are members of the project. However, the 'Public' project setting allows the project to be made visible and to be accessed by all users in the workspace.
What happens when a project is 'Public' and anyone can view it?
When a project is viewable to everyone (i.e., has the 'Public' project setting enabled), the project becomes public and is visible in Project Navigator to all members of the workspace and shows as 'Public.' Actions in public projects will be visible in summary views for non-project members, making it easy for managers to see all work of their direct reports without having to be in all of the same projects.
All users in the workspace have the ability to open the project, see and edit actions, and interact with the project.
What can non-project members do in a public project?
Click into the project and see the project in different layouts
Click into actions and view/edit actions
Comment on actions
Follow public project actions and receive notifications on them
Drag an action from a public project into a chat group
Select public projects in summary view creation modal
What can't non-project members do in a public project?
Be assigned actions or subactions (non-members will not appear in the assignee picker or in team view)
Edit project members
Edit project settings
View the associated project chat group
Setting a project to public:
The project owner and workspace admins have the ability to make a project 'Public' via the project member within the project.
Expand the permissions settings at the bottom of the page, and click the checkbox to make the project public.
