However, when I shared the link to people it would say access denied. So even though it’s a private link, it would not let them subscribe to it. I would still have to manually add them. Unless the private link is supposed to let them subscribe.
It looks like we may have spaced out on adding this capability. We will look into it. In the mean time, if you have a list of users that you want to add to your private deck, you can send them to me in a PM and we can look into seeing if we can add them for you.
Side note: I think it would be good if we support these scenarios in addition to allow deck maintainers to invite subscribers:
Make private decks appear in the explore page
Allow visiting the URL for a private deck
if the user doesn’t have access, display an option to request access
allow the deck maintainers to approve or deny requests
This would have the caveat that the title, description, and owner of private decks wouldn’t be private.
Haha that was literally what I was going to ask for next. Sounds like a great idea. Though I don’t agree with allowing the private decks to appear in the explore page. I still think it should be sent out via a private link. If it was public, it may attract unwanted subscribers.
