How can I import my padlets to my Backpack account from an existing account?

Step 1: Log in to your Backpack account. Click on the ellipsis button (...) found on the bottom left of your dashboard. There, you will see a drop-down menu that includes the option to import.

Step 2: On the next page, you will be prompted to log in to your basic account so enter credentials. Email addresses don't need to match.

Step 3: Choose the padlets you'd like to import and click Import

Importing padlets will change the URLs of your padlets. If people regularly visit your padlet, re-share the link after the transfer.

If you would require name attribution for posts when transferring the padlets, do ensure that the users are added to the Backpack account first. When you import your padlet, we match the email address of a poster to a Backpack member.

Author names may be anonymized if they have not beed added into the Backpack account. For posts to display the authors of posts, they must first be members of the Backpack account.
