How do I identify who has contributed on my padlet?

If you want to keep track of who's posting on your padlet, you need to adjust your Attribution settings to display each author's name above their post.

You can find and adjust your attribution settings by going to your padlet and clicking on the Modify cog in the upper right corner.

  • With Attribution turned on, author's names will appear above posts, but only if contributors are logged into accounts before posting.
  • You can make it mandatory to log in before posting by selecting the Members Only privacy setting (Share > Change Privacy - Members Only).
If your contributors are not able to make Padlet accounts, you can have them post their name as the title of each post as a workaround.

What about Backpack and Briefcase accounts?

Backpack and Briefcase accounts are a little different. You can still share your Backpack and Briefcase padlets with anyone, but only people who are members of your Backpack or Briefcase account can have their names automatically appear. Contributors will need to log into the Backpack or Briefcase account before their names will appear.
