Note: This post has been updated to reflect the new publishing flow in Haiku Deck 2.0, which now offers in-app privacy controls. If you have not yet updated your app, be sure to do that here. For getting-started Haiku Deck help, check out the Haiku Deck Tutorial.
You have complete control over the privacy of your Haiku Decks, even those that are published to the web. We offer three privacy settings:
Public – Your deck may show up in search results and may be selected for our galleries, to be viewed by anyone who visits the Haiku Deck website
Restricted – Only people who have the link to your deck can view it
Private – Only you can view your deck
You can now specify and update your privacy settings right from the app, as well as from the website.
Setting Privacy from the App
1. From your iPad, tap SHARE. (Tip: Read more about publishing and sharing here.)
2. In the SAVE & SHARE popup, you’ll be prompted to add or edit your deck’s title, specify the privacy setting, and select one or more categories.
3. Tap the green PUBLISH button. (Tip: Read more about how the Haiku Deck app and website work together here.)
4. After you have published a deck, you can change the privacy settings from the larger SAVE & SHARE popup.
Tap CHANGE PRIVACY, select your desired option, then tap BACK.
5. To completely remove a deck from the website, tap UNPUBLISH. You can re-publish your deck at any time.
Setting Privacy from the Website
- Sign in to the Haiku Deck website the same way you sign in to the app. (Look for the SIGN IN button in the top right corner). Click GALLERY, then MY GALLERY to view all the Haiku Decks that you have published. (Tip: If the deck you’re looking for isn’t showing up, try this.)
- To adjust the privacy setting one of your decks, click it to open it in Web Edit View. Click the PRIVACY button below your deck, then select the option you prefer. (You can also choose “Unpublish” if you wish to completely remove your deck from our website. You can re-publish it from your iPad any time.)
While you’re in Web Edit View, you can also add Notes, grab an Embed code for your blog or website, share your deck with your networks, or download a beautiful PDF you can use for a handout. Read more about how the Haiku Deck app and website work together here.
Tip: You can keep your deck set to Private while you’re working on it or until you make your big presentation. Once you’re done, be sure to set your story free by changing your Privacy setting to Public. You’ll be amazed how many views your Haiku Decks can rack up when you start sharing them across your social channels!
