Account: private or secret map

It appears that a map created by a user associated with a team is viewable/updatable by all members of a team, even when it has private or secret access.

Is there supposed to be a means to secure a map to be viewable by a limited portion of the team? Tried to experiment by having a map created by a subteam and private and another secret. But all team members (of the top level team/acct) could view the map, too.

    Those permissions are working as designed. Maps added to a team are visible by all members of the team by design. The sharing privileges are for users outside of the team. With respect to a team/subteam hierarchy permissions always flow down, so members of a parent team can always see all items within the child team. Those permissions can be set to also look back up, but by default they do not, if you were to create a subteam with users on it, they would not be able to see the main team maps unless you either set the subteam to have permissions on the parent team or invited a user to the parent team.

    Does that make sense?

    Ben,Great, that is what I believe I saw.  We want to have some maps not viewable to part of the team. Think I understand how to enable this.Regards,SteveSent from my Galaxy
