Configure sharing settings for your plans 🔒

Note: this feature is currently available for preview partners only. Please get in touch with us if you are interested in trying it out.

Cascade exists for the purpose of making your strategy more visible to everyone. Despite being transparent by default, we understand that some plans may need to be shared with only a group of people for a variety of reasons. We've enabled configure sharing settings on an individual plan level so that you can have full control over the visibility of your confidential information!

You can now set a plan to private and share it only with a group of users by adding a new plan. You can also update the sharing settings of your existing plans anytime from the 'Plan Settings' option located from the three dots icon on the planner. To learn more about how it works, please check out our knowledge base article here!
