How can I share a padlet with users outside our organization?

Padlets created with a Backpack or Briefcase account are slightly different to the ones you make in your personal account. They are private by default which means that only the owner can access the padlet they have created-- until shared.

If you are a Backpack or Briefcase member (meaning your domain ends in padlet.org) and want to share a padlet with a non-member seamlessly, you can make changes to the padlet's settings to allow access as a first step.

  1. Click SHARE
  2. Change Privacy >> Secret (it means padlet will be available for anyone with the link)
  3. Click Visitor Permissions to assign access capabilities (can-write, view-only, or can-moderate)
  4. Finally, click SAVE

You can now publish and share the padlet with anyone -- registration not required! Here are a bunch of ways one can publish and invite people to access a padlet.

P.S. Because the users aren't in the same organization as you, they'll show up as 'anonymous', we suggest getting them to indicate their names on their comments and posts :)
