User roles

If you have an individual Padlet account, there's just one user: You! But if you are part of a Team or school account, you will be assigned a user role.

Read on to learn more about the different Padlet user roles.

Team

Teams have four roles: Owner, Admin, Maker and Contributor. You must purchase a license for each Owner, Admin and Maker. Contributors are included for free. Here's a breakdown of each role.

If you have a paid Team Gold plan and you add more Admins and Makers to your account, you will be billed automatically (within 24 hours) for the additional users.

Backpack

Backpack is our account for schools, and it includes four roles: Owner, Admin, Teacher and Student. You must purchase a license for each Owner, Admin and Teacher. Students are included for free. Here's a breakdown of each role.

The Student column refers to licensed students in your Backpack account. If your students do not have licenses, they can still view and post on Backpack padlets, but their posts will be anonymous. They will also not be able to create Backpack padlets.
