Padlet privacy options
When you create a padlet, you can choose a privacy setting to control who can access it. Learn more about each privacy setting to decide which is best for your padlet.
Accessing the privacy settings
You can access your privacy settings by opening the Share menu of any padlet.
Secret: The padlet is only accessible to the creator of the padlet and any user who has the link. The link will be hidden from Google and public areas of Padlet. To share Secret padlets with others, the owner must invite them through the Share menu.
Secret - Password: The padlet is password protected. The padlet is not searchable, and you need the link to the padlet and the password to access it.
Secret - Log in: Anyone with the link can access the padlet, but they must be logged into their Padlet account. Aside from this extra layer of security, comments and posts will display their author's names when this feature is enabled.
Public: The padlet will show up in Google searches and be displayed on your public profile.
Org/team-only: The padlet can only be accessed by licensed members of your organization or team, and they will be forced to log into their account to access.
Display in team dashboard
If you choose the org/team-only privacy option, you can also choose to display your padlet in the organization or team dashboard. If you enable this feature, your padlet will appear in everyone's dashboard. If you do not want everyone in your organization to see your padlet, you should turn this feature OFF.
Once you choose your privacy, you can also select your Visitor permissions. These dictate whether visitors can read, write on, or edit the padlet.
No access: This will only allow the creator of the padlet access. If anyone should need access to your padlet or you would like a select few people to interact on the padlet, these users will not be permitted unless you invite them as a collaborator.
Reader: If the permission is set to Reader, visitors can read others' posts, comment and add reactions (if these options are enabled). Readers will not be allowed to create new posts.
Writer: With Writer permissions enabled, users can do everything a Reader can do but they can also make new posts.
Moderator: Moderators can do everything a Reader and Writer can do with the added benefit of editing capabilities. This means they can change things such as wallpaper, format, title, etc. Approving and rejecting posts are another advantage of Moderator permissions.
Admin: Once a user is added as a collaborator you can give them their own special Visitor permissions from the dropdown menu. All of the permissions are the same as listed in this article except for one additional permission: Admin.
Admins have the same editing permissions as the owner/creator of the padlet - including inviting other collaborators and the capability to delete the padlet.
