Collaboration is the heart of MURAL, but sometimes you need to keep that collaboration to just a few people. To help with that, MURAL offers Enterprise plan customers confidential rooms.


What are confidential rooms?

Confidential rooms are the same as private rooms but they take security one step further, mainly by not allowing for the creation of invite links. This applies to the confidential room itself and any murals stored within it. That means only collaborators who have been explicitly invited to a room or mural by email have access.

Here are a few other security benefits to confidential rooms:

  • Confidential rooms can’t be duplicated.

  • Murals in a confidential room can’t be moved or duplicated outside of that room.

  • Murals published in confidential rooms can’t be published as templates.

  • Confidential rooms can’t be moved to a workspace other than where they were created.

  • Confidential rooms can only be created—you can’t make an existing room confidential.

  • Confidential rooms can’t be turned into private or open rooms.

So, if you want to lock down content and collaboration, confidential rooms are your answer!

Note: Confidential rooms are only available as part of MURAL’s Enterprise plan.

Create a confidential room

Keep in mind that confidential rooms must be created from scratch. So, you can’t turn an existing room into a confidential room.

To create a confidential room:

  1. From the home page, click the plus icon next to Private rooms.

  2. Type a Room name.

  3. Select the Make this room confidential checkbox.

  4. Type a Room description (optional).

  5. Click Create room.

You’re then taken to your new ultra-top-secret confidential room. You’ll see a lock next to the room’s name at the top of the screen as well as in the left-hand sidebar. When you create murals in this room, you can easily tell they’re part of your confidential room in two ways:

  • A Confidential lock icon shows to the left of the mural name.

  • A banner that reads “This mural is confidential. Invitations can be sent by email only.” on the mural’s share modal.
