Booklist Privacy levels

There are 3 Booklist privacy levels:

  • Draft - this is the default status of every booklist, and you cannot change this status until you add at least 3 items to the booklist. In this status nobody can see or find your booklists and you cannot share it
  • Private - once you add at least 3 items to the booklist, you can change to this status. In this status you can share the booklist by sharing the Share list URL, but only users knowing the URL will be able to access the booklist - this list will not be found in Booklist search or any other way
  • Public - once you add at least 3 items to the booklist and change to this status, your booklist becomes public - you can share it using the Share list URL, as well as your booklist will be possible to find using Booklist search and Booklist widgets if your booklist matches any of search or widget queries
  • Public
