Members: How to join a topic or group

As a member, you can create a video to submit to your lead in a few steps.

Step 1:  Locate the join information from your lead 

Your lead has given you one of these ways to join a group discussion:

  • A join code or a QR code. For example: "FGrid3567" or "a591dc5d."
  • A join link. For example: or
  • A unique username or guest password: If you don’t have an email, then you’re lead should also give you a unique username or guest password.

Flipgrid works on most web browsers and mobile devices. For the best web experience, we recommend Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome. For easy access to Flipgrid, download the Flipgrid extension. On mobile devices, download the free Flipgrid app for iOS and Android.

Step 2:  Join the discussion

Join your lead's discussion by using the link or code provided by your lead in step 1. 

  • If you were given a join or shareable link: Click the link. 
  • If you were given a join code:
    • On web: Go to and enter the code.
    • On mobile: Open the app and enter the code.
  • If you were given a QR code: Scan the QR code with your device camera or on the Flipgrid mobile app. 

You’ll see a prompt to log in, enter an username, or a password. If your username or password are not working, be sure to double-check the case and space sensitivity. 

Tip: If you’re prompted to log in, choose Google if your school uses Google Classroom, Docs, and Drive.  Choose Microsoft if your school uses Word, OneDrive, or Microsoft Teams. 

Step 3:  Record and Submit 

Once you’ve joined, you’ll see your lead’s Topic, or discussion prompt. Follow the instructions and when you’re ready to record, click the red Record a Response button or the Flipgrid logo for the camera to start. 

When you're in the Flipgrid camera, you can record a video in these 4 easy steps:

  3.  Take a selfie: The selfie will be the cover image for your video. Tap the arrow in the bottom right to advance. 
  4.  Submit your video: Edit your name, add a title, or attach a link. Then submit!
