Hi all, today we’re excited to announce hidden sections to help keep your docs clean and organized. You can hide sections to archive old content, or to hide sections with supporting data that make the rest of the doc work but otherwise get in the way.
How to hide a section or folder
To hide a section or folder, click on the 3 dots to the right of its name and then choose “Hide”.
Showing hidden sections and folders
To temporarily show hidden sections just for you, click the 3 dots next to the “New” button at the bottom of the section list, and turn on “Show hidden sections”.
After section are made visible you can permanently unhide them by clicking on the 3 dots to the right of its name and choosing “Unhide”.
In case you’re wondering…
What plans include hidden sections and folders?
Hidden sections and folders are available in the Pro plan and higher.
Can other users see hidden sections?
Yes, all people with access to a doc can choose to show hidden sections and folders. These features are intended to be used for convenience to improve the organization of a doc, and are not meant as security features.
Can I hide sections only from certain users?
Hiding a section or folder hides it from all users, and it is not possible to specify that different users see different sections as visible or hidden. If different people need to use different sections in a doc, Cross-doc allows you to create different docs for different audiences and share data between them.
Can I restrict what changes user can make in a section?
Hidden sections only affects the default visibility of a section. You can use Locking and Permissions to restrict what changes users can make in a section.
Check it out and share your thoughts! We’d love to hear how you use the feature in your docs, and any feedback you have.
