When you share a card, you can assign a role to the new member of the card. Since members can view published child cards their permissions can also be inherited. There are six different roles someone can have on a card:


The original creator of a card. This cannot be changed. 

  • Always retain the card even if it is Cut from a parent (i.e. all of an author's cards are automatically 'Kept').

  • Assign all user roles, and promote/demote moderators

  • Cannot be demoted

  • Delete for Everyone

You will know if you are the original author of a card as the edit button will display a pencil icon.

Moderator 🛡 

The reviewer and curator of the members and child cards.

Editor 📖 

The editor of the current card. Cannot change member roles.

  • Edit the card content

  • Manage comments (incl. deleting other users) 

  • Shared Tag management

Contributor ✈️ 

The best way to collaborate with someone, allowing them to add cards but not edit your content.

  • Publishing new child cards within this parent card

  • Cutting cards they added within this parent card

Reader 👓 

Share your cards with others without worry of any additions or changes.

Ghost 👻 

This is the most restrictive role.

  • Liking

  • Personal tag management

  • Keeping

  • Adding this card to another parent

  • Adding a child card as unlisted (not publishing)

  • Visibility

  • Junk

  • Delete for Me

You can also "Remove Member" from the card if you would like to revoke their access. The edit button will have a different icon depending on you role on the card.
