Can I make a topic page and/or my user profile hidden or private? (Scoop.it Topic Pages)

If you do not want a Scoop.it topic to be public, you can either:

- make it hidden which will render it visible to you and you only: this option is available to all Scoop.it Business customers.

- make it private which will make it visible to you and the people you want to grant access to through either: a password, or defining specific Scoop.it users or groups of users. This option is available to our Scoop.it Enterprise customers. This feature requires a manual billing process and a yearly payment. To request pricing and set it up, please contact us at business@scoop.it.

To make not only a topic private, but to also make user profiles private, and benefit from a complete private Knowledge Management solution for your company, ask us for a demo of Scoop.it Knowledge Management version.

1. Hidden Topics implementation:

To hide topics once you've upgraded to Scoop.it Business, access any of your topics and click the "Hide this topic" button in the menu bar:


On the next screen, click on "Only me" to hide your topic from any other user: it will be visible to you only (and you will need to be logged into Scoop.it to see it). Note that if your topic was public before you make it hidden, it can take a few days for Google to stop indexing it. 



2. Private Topics implementation:

Depending on your needs, privacy can be implemented by restricting access through either one of the following methods: 

1. Password protection: readers won't need a Scoop.it account to read your topic but will need to know the password from you. 

2. email address restriction: readers will need to have a Scoop.it account with an authorized email address among a list you will define. 

3. domain name restriction: readers will need to have a Scoop.it account with an email address from an authorized Web domain among a list you will define.

Once the privacy option has been activated on your Scoop.it Business or Scoop.it Enterprise account:

  • You will be free of using whichever privacy method suits you best for each private topic and also change between methods at any point in time. 
  • You will be also free to mix private and public topics from the same Scoop.it Business account.
  • Your private topics won't be visible in Search engines like Google or on Scoop.it (including the Scoop.it Search, your public profile page when viewed by other users, etc...)
3. Knowledge Management implementation:

To go beyond topic privacy and benefit from a complete private, white-label and collaborative Scoop.it environment within your company, ask us for a demo of Scoop.it Knowledge Management version.
