How to make a Card Public

Roles: Authors


A Public Card is a Guru Card that can be accessed by anyone with just the Card link alone—no Guru login needed. Anyone with the link can view this entire Card (including images and files), even if they are outside of your Guru team. This means you can now share knowledge in Guru with everyone— from your friends, your hiring candidates, your LinkedIn followers, to anyone in between

Note: Public Cards are turned ON by default at the Collection-level by a Collection Owner or Admin. To learn more about disabling Public Cards, click here and read the FAQs.

Important things to note:

  • Once a Card is made public, a globe icon will appear on the copy-card-link icon to indicate that this Card is now Public.

  • Public Cards will NOT appear in a Guru search for those Guru users who do not have access to the Card via Collection or Board Permissions.
