I'd love to let collaborators benefit from the full cross app functionality, cool views and so on in a workspace without thereby necessarily giving them access to each and every item. Idea: create a new role which resembles the Light User role but only makes visible items where the respective user is selected in an item, in whatever field.
Example: you have a deliverables app with a team field allowing to add workspace members. If you add a Light or Regular or Admin user, this means she/he gets notifications on the item and can filter "their" items. If you'd add a Limited/Restricted User this would make the item visible for her/him in the first place. But the limited user would be able to use, e. g., a card view with status columns or a view filtering for a certain project. The limited user would only see items where she/he is "Team" or "responsible" or "QA" or "product owner" or whatever, but in the same way as workspace members.
The departure from sharing the single items to a non-member: the external user only sees all shared items in a flat list and can therefore not really participate in the workflow you build in a workspace. With external users the communication on Podio doesn't reach beyond email anymore. A new role would fix that.
