Educators who want to have discussions and engage with their other communities can use Public Permission. Public Permission allows participants to join by simply having the Join Code or Link. There are no additional passwords needed to view the Topic or Group. Public Permission should not be used with students and should be adult communities only. For students, educators should give Permission using Student Emails or Student Usernames.
Setting up Public Permission
- Log into your free educator account at admin.flipgrid.com
- Select the Actions button to edit your Topic or Group or create a new Topic or Group
- Scroll down to the Permissions section. Select Public
- Anyone with the link or Join Code can view the Topic or Group.
- In order to record a video, participants must log into a Microsoft or Google-managed email.
- Flipgrid recommends participants be 16+ years old or have parental permission to participate in Public Topics or Groups.
