Feature request: organization posts only visible for team members option

Hi Forem devs,

My Forem selfhost will basically be a system for organizing all future students in my school into different classes. The organization feature allows me to do so.

However, posts made in a certain organized group/team will often be very irrelevant to people not in that group. Currently they do show up in everyone's feed though...

Would it be possible to create an option to make organization posts only visible for members of that organization's team?

Or perhaps make it an option to either post it to the organization page privately (for the team) or publicly (for everyone)?

It would definitely create more order and harmony in the case of my Forem-forum 😀

🙃 I would like to hear your thoughts on this...

I think this is an interesting suggestion and a good idea!

One thing you can do at the moment as a temporary work-around is to create posts but "save draft" instead of publishing them. When you do that posts will remain private since they are still considered as "unpubished posts" but the post URL is public and can be shared with anyone you'd like to have access to that particular post. Only those with the URL can see the post, to everyone else it remains a secret.

Hmm that unfortunately will not do.

Posts will then have to be shared with everyone manually. Then there's no longer much benefit from having set up an organization...
