Support User Permissions for plans under Enterprise

Keeping all boards with the same permission settings for all projects is quite a hassle. User permissions per folder (effecting all boards within the folder) would be perfect.

A matrix of the permissions per subject would do the job

Use case: as a product owner I want to setup 4 or 5 boards in a folder and want to be able to adjust all the permission settings for all the boards and its users at once, so I am sure all the setting are done right for all the boards


I’d love to see that in Monday.

Granular permissions are an essential feature in team environments.


I would love there should be more User Permission settings, for example, I should be able to control in which group a Pulse should be [use case: when something comes into the board it’s under a group called “Unassigned”, once I assign it (which that column is locked for edit) I move it to Scheduled Tasks].

Also, the order (sort) in the group itself would be great to have an option to have it locked [use case: when I move something from unassigned to scheduled it goes to the bottom of the list and employes take from top of list down, so if the sort can be modified then it can be moved around and jump the line {part of this would be that when someone sorts the board on a column I cant sort it back based on what was added first and since this is the sort it should be I’m stuk}]

I understand that it can get a little complex with so many Permission options but maybe make it as an optional add-on “Additional Permission Set”

Can the Creation Log column provide you with the sorting you need here? I’ve used that successfully in the past to sort board entries based on when they were added to a board.

In moving items between groups, have you automated this based on a status change?

Going beyond that, I’ve previously managed some permission challenges by moving an item to an “Active” or “Working” board.

Not sure if any of the above helps with what you are trying to achieve, but thought that these options were worth flagging.

Thanks Snicho.

Since I’m not sorting by creation date rather by when something was assigned (sometimes its a priority) this workaround doesn’t work, also that’s a reason why I would like to be able to control moving between groups.

It would also be super helpful is we could allow certain users to see the columns we designate for their viewing and/or editing, but turn off/on permissions to view updates/info boxes associated with pulses. This would be HUGE for my team!!


there is any news on this???

We are also struggling with user permissions. From my POV, there are 2 problems:

  1. Permission groups
  2. Permission granularity

Permission groups
Currently, there are only 2 permissions groups “owners” and “subscribers”. Owners can do everything on a board and that cannot be changed. And subscribers can either “edit everything”, “edit content”, “edit rows assigned to them”, “view only”. Well, we had a scenario where we needed a 3rd group. We had a few owners who could add columns and groups etc. We had a few people who we wanted to be able to edit content. And then we had a third group of people who we only wanted to be able to view the board.

Permissions granularity
The 4 existing permission levels are quite restrictive. For example “edit content” still allows people to add new pulses - what if we want them to be able to edit existing pulses, but not add new ones? Another example, “edit everything” allows users to add new columns and groups - what if we want them to be able to add new groups, but not new columns?

Suggested solution
You could allow board owners to create custom “groups” and assign users to those groups. Then, as Etjo suggested, allow owners to update a matrix of “activities” against “groups” so that you can have complete granular control over a number of different user groups.



I couldn’t agree with Josh more. This is exactly the same problem we have with permissions and I think Josh has hit upon something with breaking the permissions into groups with granular permissions.

We would greatly benefit from his suggested solution.


This is very needed indeed!

we have many boards of regular tasks to a specific department (operations, IT team, Dev, ect) that we want the members of that team to be able to edit everything (but not be board owners), and the rest of the company to have view only to see the status of their requests.
(*requests are open through a form, so there is no need to have editing rights to open a task)


Bringing this back from the depths as the system still operates on an admin OR user basis which is limiting.

An interim solution would be the ability to take the current set of permission options and apply them to ‘Groups’ or ‘Teams’ of users would be an excellent.

In addition, a new ‘user type’ for Board Owner would solve many challenges also.


Permissions are killing us on our rollout.

Column Permissions don’t survive the templating process. That makes column permissions basically worthless for our purposes.

Board Permissions ALSO don’t survive the templating process. This would be really useful as well.

You can’t assign ownership to groups. Again. This makes the administration of large dashboards and company wide summaries VERY hard.

These are the 2 things making it really hard to roll this out beyond a small team. Big-kid apps need granular permission control.


Agree with all of the above. Our organization could vastly benefit from nuanced permission options. While both users might be considered “Members”, organizationally one is an individual contributor and one is a manager. Our way so far of getting around this is leveraging workspace and board ownership. But we just ran into an issue with a manager wanting to export data for their team and we had to bump them up to Admin access to do so. Would love to see a manager level of permissions (ideally per workspace) or a matrix as suggested above. Would love to see this feature in the future! Thanks!

Hi everyone,

Firstly, we recognise it has been a significant amount of time since we have updated this thread, and do apologise. We are actively working on improving our responsiveness to the community at this time, particularly our feature request process so appreciate your patience in advance.

On that note, as we pull together all the votes associated with this topic, we would love if you can redirect the votes on this thread, to the primary thread (most voted) here - if it isn’t too much trouble: User Permissions For Enterprise Only :( - #2 by Marko - as we plan to close this smaller thread in an attempt to consolidate all votes, and better prioritise this feature request based upon the total amount of votes :pray:

Thanks for your understanding!

I have done this especially because we need it ASAP, can we have an ETA for this??

That’s a real shame. As an admin of our account, with a growing team it becomes almost unmanageable very fast. I’m bombarded with questions and issues from confused team members who can’t see specific boards or items. The reason is because new team members join, get hit with all your onboarding materials and start creating their own boards and workspaces without our knowledge. All of this could be prevented if we had a way to control who can add new boards. It’s a free for all now which doesn’t bode well for the long term use of it in our company unfortunately.


A’m agreed with you!

Hi Everyone, Thanks for sharing your feedback. We’ve discussed this request with the product team and while they understand the importance of expanding user permissions for different accounts, as of now it is only available for enterprise accounts. User permissions is part of our wider pricing policy, which is carefully reviewed every couple of months.

Keep voting and sharing your ideas because your feedback makes a difference and helps guide us in prioritizing features that our customers care about most. Learn more about our new features request process here.

Not having this feature in PRO is really making want to choose another company for my Proof on Concept I am offering to a few clients.

I agree, surely the better commercial approach by Monday should be to encourage use of apps from within Monday, however this is driving SME’s to use external software for departments where privacy and employee confidentiality is essential.
