We have a lot of groups that map to private categories.
Up until now I used to call them “closed groups” and tried to disguise the difference between groups and categories. As you can imagine, that’s created a lot of confusion on my system.
I’m throwing in the towel. I plan to call groups just “groups” (which is confusing by itself because some of these are “committees”, others are “interest groups”, etc.). But I’m not sure what to call private categories.
I think @tobiaseigen uses the term “secure categories”, which I like because it sounds safe and authoritative. But it’s an unusual term that I haven’t seen used elsewhere, so I’m concerned it might confuse/dissuade users.
“Private categories” is a decent term, but I’m afraid it might create confusion with “private messages”, which can also be sent to groups.
Any other ideas? If you have a similar arrangement, what do you call them?
