Assign someone without subscribing him/her to this boad

I have a board of leads where I assign each lead to an agent.
After I assign the lead to an agent and change customer status, a new item is automatically created in a separate board called “Agents” with the lead data.

The problem is that I don’t want the agents to see the company’s general list of leads, so I didn’t subscribed them in the “leads” board, but only in the “agents” board.

On the other hand, I want to be able to assign the leads by agents in the “leads” board.

From what I understand, you can’t assign people an item without them being subscribed to this board.
Does anyone have a creative way to deal with this complexity without switching to an enterprise plan and paying a lot for the ability to have item permissions?

Hey there! :blush: I have an idea! :bulb:

You could use the Dropdown Column or Status Column and edit the labels to be names of each of your agents. Then, you can assign an agent to each lead without them being notified or seeing this board.

What do you think about this idea? :blush:
