How do I get started with a team?
With a team, you get access to a dedicated space where your group can create, share, and collaborate on padlets. No more sharing links. All of your team padlets will be accessible in one space right on the dashboard. Here's how to get started with your team.
Create your team
To start a team, you'll want to begin on your dashboard. There is a button on the left hand side of your dashboard with a small rounded rectangle and a plus sign, squared below. This is the Make a new team button. Click it! (You can also access it directly here.)
From this page, you can name your team and set up your custom Team URL. You can also stick with your randomly generated team name.
Choose a plan
Once you're satisfied with your team name and URL, click Continue. You'll be asked whether want a Team Neon plan or a Team Gold plan. Essentially, Team Neon is free and limits the number of padlets your team can make. Team Gold is a paid plan that includes unlimited padlets. You pay based on the number of makers in your account. You can find all of the differences here.
To invite other users to your team, start on your dashboard and click ... > Settings.
From your Settings, scroll down to your team on the left side of your screen and select the button that says Members under your team's title.
From your team's Members page, select the button that says Invite. You can copy an invite link specific to the role you want the invitee to occupy on your team. All you need to do is Enable the link, copy the link and send it to the user you want to invite.
Assign roles to your teammates
All members of a team have a user role. If you created the team, you are the owner, which means you have control over the team and are responsible for any billing changes or payments.
Admins can contribute to padlets, make new padlets, and invite new team members and edit member roles.
Makers can contribute to padlets and make new padlets.
Contributors can contribute to existing padlets.
If you are on a Team Gold plan, you will be billed based on the number of Admins and Makers in your team in addition to yourself.
Start making padlets!
Making a padlet that will live in your team is almost the exact same as making a regular padlet. You start from your dashboard and select Make a padlet, squared below.
When you make the padlet, be certain it is set to be made in your team. You can control where your padlet is going to be made in the window that opens after you select 'Make a padlet', squared below.
