Add a post

Now that your padlet is set up, it's time to begin adding content! ✨

Add a post

  1. Double-tap or click the (+) button on the padlet. If you're using a desktop, you can also type C to open a new post.
  1. Add a title, text, and/or an attachment. Click Publish to post. If you're using a desktop, you can also type Cmd/Ctrl + Enter.

Not seeing a textbox or the (+) icon? The padlet is probably not open for posts. Click here for more info.


For a more striking entry, you can also add media files to your post. Some of the attachment options include images, documents, links, videos, and drawings. You can even use your webcam or device microphone to record a video or sound file. 📸

You can drag and drop files into the padlet to post multiple items at once!

Post Drafts

Posts will autosave as drafts. A draft will remain on its padlet across all devices and sessions. Post drafts appear on the bottom of the padlet screen.

Post drafts will save across sessions and devices, so if you want to attach a file on a different device, you can leave a draft, return to the padlet on a different device, and attach it there.

Schedule a post

You are also able to schedule a post.

  1. To schedule a post, select the clock icon (🕐) in the post composer.
  1. Set your desired posting time. This can be any time in the next year. Select Set time.
  1. Select Schedule.

Pin a post

You can also pin a post to your padlet!

  1. Click the vertical three-dot ellipsis button (...) in the top right corner of the post you want to pin.
  2. Select Pin post!

This will automatically pin your post to the top of the page.
