In the event that an Interest Area is created for sensitive information (think HR or other internal use cases), you might not want the System Admin to be able to peek into the dialogues of that Interest Area. 

Your district can set up Private Interest Areas or Interest Area Categories in these events. When set to private, only the Category Owners and Respective Interest Area Owners have access to dialogues within those Interest Areas and the ability to add those Interest Areas onto Landing Pages. 

Who can set it to private? 

  • System Administrators
  • Category Owners

Who can unset it from private? 

  • Category Owners
  • Interest Area Owners
