< See all Padlet: Guides for Staff

You can share your Padlet with an individual user and allow them to view and contribute. This is useful in case you intend to collaborate with another user rather than sharing it with a group. Please note that Padlet refers to individual users as members and for this purpose they need to already have a Padlet account.

1. On the top right corner click Share and select Add Members. Search using either their name or Padlet username.

If the member you would like to add does not know their username, they can find it on the top left of their home page.

4. The individual user receives an email notifying them they have been added to the Padlet. Alternatively, you can provide them with the URL, which they can use to access it.
