Create boards where end-users are not able to see each other's names.

  • All end-users are assigned an automatically generated alias instead.

  • Canny admins will still be shown by their names.

  • An end-user will see their own name with their alias displayed next to it in (parentheses) when posting or commenting.

  • Anonymous boards are available on the Growth and Business plans

Making a board anonymous

Go to the Boards tab in your Canny settings and enable the toggle labeled "Use user aliases in posts, comments, votes, and comment likes":
