How about a simple discussion can be private when we want it?

And by private i mean to see it only the members of the group.

This could be more for protection of privacy or protecting personal data

Chris! Are you a mind reader? We have this mocked up in balsamiq and our next round of privacy related stuff will include exactly this feature.

At the moment privacy is set at a per-group level, so we have examples of people setting up groups like "Contributors (public)" and "Contributors (private)".

When this is changed to per-discussion privacy, it's going to simplify that a lot.

@robertguthrie no i am not mind reader. But when i think something i think as simple as can be for everyone...

If you want more expert thinking and proposals sorry but i can't help.

@matthewbartlett this is something I missed off of my list today.

Could you please also include visual indicator or text to indicate if the discussion is viewable by the public or just group members.

And to answer this discussions feature: When a discussion starts in a public group the user may choose to make their discussion private to group members.
