Limited Access Notes

A desirable future feature would be the ability to create a text/note field for an event or entity that was readable only with a password. This would be useful when different parties with different information access both had access to a shared AT2 timeline. Situations might include: a Dungeon Master having DM-only notes that he didn't want the player's to see; a lawyer making notes accessible only to him and his client; a program manager of company A making notes on a project schedule not readable by company B; an author making notes that were not supposed to be available to the general readership; etc. Without the password, the information would not display and the field would say (for example) "Not available".

Hi, Thanks for the suggestion. Pretty sure this is the first time anyone has suggested such a feature. I can certainly see applications for it, but I think more so if we introduce multi-user support in the future (e.g. if we handled proper multi-user synchronisation, or had a cloud server, etc). Matt

Yup...I would be happy with a crawl/walk/run approach too...protected field sooner, multi-user support later.
