Many elements in Kanka have a visibility option, allowing for a control on who sees what without having to set up complex permissions.

Here is a list of what each visibility does.

  • All: Everyone can see this element.

  • Admin: Only members of the campaign’s admin role will see this element.

  • Self: Only the user who created the element will see it.

  • Self & Admin: A combination of the Admin and Self visibilities.

  • Members: Only members of the campaign will see the element. Useful for a public campaign where members of it should see more than a public viewer.

In addition to the element’s visibility value, if it is linked to an entity, the entity’s permission will also come into play. For example, if a relation is visible to all, but the relation’s target is only visible to admins, then only admins will see the relation.
