It would be great if we could set a board’s default to have cursors hidden because it’s always a bit daunting for my coworkers when they go in just to view a board and then quickly close it because they don’t like how there’s cursors showing. This is more so for a board that’s shared for ‘homework’ rather than a live workshop or webinar where a facilitator is available to instruct users on how to hide the cursors.

@amy hosotsuji - This is a great idea! I will had it to my list of items I would like to be able to configure at the board level:

And if you didn’t know, you can vote for your own ideas :wink:

It would also be great if individual users could decide whether to share their cursor location or not. Compare this with sharing your mic or webcam input in a web conference.

@Jeff Geurts - Agreed. I would also like to hide my status altogether sometimes, i.e., not have my avatar show up in the participants panel at the top-right corner of the board.

Yes! That too! This is so important.
