Haystack private pages are a wonderful space for you to jot down notes, tasks, or to-do lists that only you as the author can see. They can also be used as a staging area for pages that you'd like to share in a group in the future. Private pages can be created by all users in your workspace no matter their permissions.

Viewing Your Private Pages

To view your private pages...

  1. Click on Resources in your header navigation

  2. Select All Pages from the dropdown

  3. Click on Private Pages in the left-hand navigation menu

Note: When navigating around your pages, private pages are marked with a hidden eye icon, indicating to you that no other user or admin can see them.

Creating a Private Page

All Haystack users have the ability to create private pages, no matter their permissions. Users who have content creation permissions — as admins, group owners, etc. — will be able to add their pages to groups where permitted.

As you're creating, please note that all pages will begin as private pages. You can learn more about creating non-private pages here: Creating Resource Pages.

How to create a private page:

  3. Click Save. Your page is now saved to your Private Pages space.
