Share a padlet

There are many ways to share a padlet. The simplest is to share the URL of your padlet, but depending on your padlet, you might prefer a different sharing method. Here is a summary of sharing options. All sharing options can be found in the Share menu of your padlet.

Adjust your privacy settings

Before you share your padlet, you should ensure that you have the right privacy settings. Every padlet has multiple privacy settings, and this setting determines who can access the padlet.

Secret is the default privacy setting for individual users, which means anyone with the link can access the padlet. However, if you have 'Visitor permissions' set to No Access, for instance, you will need to invite users as collaborators before they can access the padlet.

Why can't people post on my padlet?
If you want to allow users to comment on your padlet but there is no need for them to create their own posts, be sure you have the 'Visitor permissions' section set to Commenter. If you'd like users to create their own posts on your padlet set the 'Visitor permissions' section to Writer.
