How Can I Make My Collaborators Invisible to Each Other?



Get Training

There is a setting at the folder level called "Hide Collaborators". When you enable this Folder Properties option:

  • Collaborators in this folder:
    • Cannot see each other.
    • Cannot add new collaborators.
    • Cannot assign tasks to folder co-owners as they are hidden.
  • The folder owner and co-owners are visible to all collaborators.
  • All other collaborators are displayed as Someone in the collaborator's username field.
  • Only the owner or co-owner can add new collaborators.


To hide collaborators, you must be the owner of the Collaboration Folder.

Hiding Collaborators

To use this feature, follow this procedure:

  1. Click the dropdown arrow next to the folder and select Properties > General Info. The Folder Properties pop-up displays.
  2. Click the Security tab. Alternately, you can click Properties > Security to get to this tab directly.
  3. Click the checkbox next to Hide collaborators.

  4. Click Okay to save your changes.
