Welcome to your first team!
Ready to start a team? Read this article to learn about setting up your first team on Padlet.
Create a team
To start your team, log into padlet.com and head to your Padlet dashboard. At the bottom of your dashboard menu, click Add new team.
You will be prompted to enter a team name and URL. You can always change this in your settings, so feel free to use our randomly-generated name and URL for now!
You'll be prompted to start a free trial or subscribe. Either way, you can get started on your team immediately.
In addition to this article, you can use the Getting started tab of the team dashboard to guide you in setting up your team account. You can also remove the Getting started tab by clicking Remove in the upper right.
Customize team info
You can adjust your team name and avatar from your settings. Just click the three dots on your dashboard to open the user menu and go to Settings>Team info. You can also click Team info on the Getting started page.
Teams have four roles: owner (that's you!), admin, maker, and contributor. Once you upgrade to a paid Team Gold plan, you will be billed for each owner, admin, and maker. Learn more about roles here.
You can invite new members by link under Settings>Members. Click Invite and then enable the link for each role you want to invite.
Once you have enabled the invite links, you can copy the links and distribute them to your teammates. You can also disable the links if you do not want more users to be added.
Once a user has accepted the invite, they will appear in this page. After they have joined, you can change their role and even transfer ownership to another team member. Just click the dropdown menu with their current role to change it.
You can also deactivate members who no longer need to be part of your team. To fully remove a user from your team, they will need to be an active member and then leave the team through their account. If you have any difficulty removing team members, please contact us.
If you want to end your trial and upgrade to Team Gold, switch from a monthly to annual subscription, or update your credit card, you can manage it all in your billing section. Just head to Settings > Billing (under your team name).
Create team padlets
When you create a new padlet from your dashboard, you can choose which space to create your padlet in: your personal account, or your team. You can toggle between the two at the top of the make a padlet panel.
Share team padlets
In addition to the standard privacy settings, you can share padlets with your team using the privacy setting Team only.
Padlets set to the privacy setting Team only will not be visible to users outside of your team by default. Anyone from your team can access the padlet with the link.
When you use the Team only privacy setting, you can also decide if the padlet will be displayed in our team dashboard. If you enable this feature, the padlet will appear on every team member's dashboard. If you disable this feature, your teammates will need the link to your padlet to access it.
Delete your team
If you need to delete your team, you can do this under Settings > Delete team. Please note that this action will delete all of the padlets in your team, and deleted padlets are not recoverable.
