What can I do, and not do, with a personal guideline (or evidence summary) compared to a guideline with an organizational ownership

Guidelines owned by an organization:
Only guidelines that have an organization as owner can be published with versions, and made public so that all users can access. 
You are required to be appointed as an administrator for an organizational account to be able to create guidelines belonging to that organization. To publish a guideline affiliated with a particular organization you need to be administrator of that guideline. 

Personal guidelines:
Guidelines that are created under your personal account, can be used for exploring, learning or teaching purposes. Personal guidelines cannot be published into versions, or made public, and you cannot invite viewers and co-authors. You also cannot get a Word export of your guideline.

Evidence summaries: 
Both personal and organizational evidence summaries can be made public. Evidence summaries currently have not advanced publishing options like guidelines, so your working version will be the same as your public version. 
Although there are no options for different versions, we still have a complete audit trail, so you will be able to keep a track of all your changes.
