    Hi Mikey:


     


    Sorry, there is no way to configure Mingle to limit the permission about who can create new cards. We encourage every team member to capture their ideas by adding new cards to their project. And we think more communication with team members can avoid problems caused by accidentally adding wrong cards.


    This is the thoughts from us, and I'd also love to understand more about why you'd like this restriction, and what problem has been caused in your team by allowing every team member adding new cards. With this information, it can help me to understand better what Mingle can help in your team as a project management tool.


    Thank you.

    Honestly, what we have is probably more of a process issue rather than a tool issue.  We've had a few developers adding "stories" that are not really stories...  for example, tasks for a story...  it really should be addressed differently, but I was hoping for an easier way out and just limiting who can create stories :)

    Hi Mikey:


    Sorry, Mingle can not restrict users from adding new "story" card.


    However, if the problem is that the user meant to add "task" but ended with adding "story" by mistake. Something can be done with Mingle to help the devs in your team to add "task" easier. If your team members are using "quick add" to add new cards. You can consider changing the card type order in "Project admin" -> "Card types". By making "task" to be the first one. By doing this, "task" will be the first option on quick add list, it might reduce the chance of adding stories when users' intent is adding tasks. 


    If the problem is the user belives that the card he is adding is a story but other members disagree. I think only more communication can help in this situration. Murmurs, Comments are features we use Mingle to help our team communicate. :-)


    Thank you.
