Padlet share menu

Every padlet can be shared. The Share menu of your padlet provides you with all of your sharing and exporting options as well as privacy controls.

Accessing the share menu

To access the share menu, select the Share arrow icon in your action bar.

You should see this menu appear.

Sharing options

Invite collaborators

You can share your padlet with other people by adding them as collaborators. You will need to invite them via username or email.

With the default notification settings, the user you share the padlet with will receive an email notification. If you want to share a private padlet (the No Access option) with a user, you will need to add them here, in the 'Add a collaborator' field, to share the padlet with them.

Once you have successfully invited another user to your padlet, it will appear in the Shared tab of their dashboard.

Visitor permissions

This is the level of editing you allow all visitors to obtain upon coming to your padlet.

  • No access: Only those who have been invited as a collaborator can access the padlet. Otherwise - this padlet is completely private.
  • Reader: Visitors are allowed to read posts, write comments and add reactions. They cannot create their own posts.
  • Writer: Visitors are allowed to read, write new posts, comment, and add reactions.
  • Moderator: Visitors can read, write, edit and approve/deny others' posts.
The old 'Private' Visitor permissions setting has been renamed No access. The new setting has the same features - just a different name.

Here are the basic privacy options for a padlet.

Privacy options are slightly different for individuals, Teams, and Padlet for Schools users. You can read descriptions of each setting in the Share menu. The default privacy setting for individual users is Secret. This means that anyone with the link can access the padlet, but it will be hidden from Google and anyone the padlet hasn't been shared with.

Here you can find Copy link to clipboard and two different types of links that can be sent out. Breakout links and submission request links can be used when you want others to collaborate on your padlet while providing restricted views.


There are many ways to share a padlet. The simplest is share the link to your padlet, but you can also share a QR code or embed your padlet on a different site.

You can export your padlet as an image, PDF, CSV, or Excel spreadsheet.

I can't access the Share panel. The button isn't there OR the button doesn't do anything when I click it. What gives?
If you are unable to access the Share panel of a padlet, please try disabling your adblocker extension. Sometimes these extensions block access to the Share panel. If this does not resolve the issue, please contact us for further assistance.
