I want to manage a Trello board with a bunch of users on it, but I don't actually want the users to participate, I just want to be able to assign them to things. Is there a way to add fictive ("dummy/mock", if you prefer) users to my board, just to easily manage their assignments to cards, but without inviting actual people?
Alternatively, if there's no such option, is there another way I can approximate this (e.g. defining each student as a card and association a card with another card)?
Background: I occasionally supervise students' projects. Trello seems really useful for me to track which project is at what stage and which students are assigned to what, but the projects are not necessarily related and I don't actually want the students to participate in this high-level management, it's just intended for me and my fellow grad students / faculty members.
