Haystack private links are a wonderful space for you to save links to the tools, dashboards, or websites that only you as the author can see. They can also be used as a staging area for links that you'd like to share in a group in the future. Private links can be created by all users in your workspace no matter their permissions.

Viewing Private Links

To view your private links...

  1. Click on Resources in your header navigation

  2. Select All Links from the dropdown

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

Keep in mind, if your admins have customized your navigation, All Links may appear in a different spot in your header menus.
