Attendees enter ideas in the meeting categories during the Gather Ideas step of a Retrospective Meeting. As a meeting moderator, you might have concerns that meeting attendees could influence each other rather than providing their own ideas. 

In the Retrospective Meeting details, the private ideation setting determines when attendees can view all submitted ideas. Private ideation is enabled by default.

When Private ideation is ON, attendees only see their own ideas during the Gather Ideas step. 

When the meeting moves to the Grouping step, all attendees can view the proposed ideas.

When Private ideation is OFF, attendees  see all submitted ideas during the Gather Ideas step.
