The different behaviours of Visible-To for different types of objects are currently quite confusing to our users.
It comes in (at least) two flavours:
- Who can see this object? (The variant used almost everywhere.)
- Who can see this object and sub-objects / contents? (Used for Phriction and Spaces.)
I currently see users trying to lock down Visible-To of their projects - apparently in the hopes to limit access to related content.
Possible solution: Maybe the different effects can be made more visible in the UI? E.g. by adding tooltips, or renaming "Visible-To" to something that signifies whether it applies to anything in addition to the object itself?
This is a split-off from T9152#131767.
