Teams

How do I create a team?

What are prompts, how to create them, and how to use them?


Prompts are custom filters that team admins can create within their teams that team members can tag their projects with.
1. To create a prompts as a team admin, go to the team that you want to create a prompt for and select "Manage Team" 2. Select the Manage Prompts tab. 3. Click "Create New Prompt" to create a new prompt (note that prompt descriptions are not visible to team members at this point). You can also edit/delete existing prompts. 4. Once a prompt has been created, you can tag your project with that prompt when uploading a project after selecting the team that you want your project to be housed in. To upload a project, click "Ask for Critique" in the header bar from any page. Then select the prompt you want to associate your project with, based on the prompts that are available in the team you select.




How do I make multiple people admins in my team?


Admins have the ability to post announcements, change team details, add/edit/remove team membes (including other team admins), and add/edit/delete prompts. 1.

Click the carrot next to the team member who you want to promote to an admin and select "Add Admin Status"




How do I filter by critiques vs filter by projects?


Below the announcement bar in your team space, you will see a tab for critiques and a tab for projects. The projects tab will show you the projects each team member has posted, and the critiques tab will show you the critiques that each team member has posted on all the projects. You can use the Team Member and Prompt filters on the right side of the screen to filter in either the projects or critiques tab.

How do I ask for a critique?


1. Select the "Ask for Critique" button in the header bar 2. Enter your project details, including up to 3 different attribute characteristics and up to 3 target audience descriptors. 3. Note - if you aren't a part of a team yet, you won't have anywhere to post your feedback request. You will want to create a team first and invite your creative friends to join the team before asking for feedback. Learn how to create a team in the "Teams" tab of this FAQ.

1. Select the "Projects" tab below your profile, and you will see all the projects you have created across all the teams that you are a part of.




How do I give a critique?

Within the team space, select a critique request you would like to learn more about. 3. Review the critique request details, then provide actionable written feedback on what works well, and what can be better (learn more about our feedback standards HERE). 4.

How do project iterations work?


When you upload a project in a team and get critiques, you can then upload a second iteration of the same project if you want to showcase how you implemented that feedback. To add a second iteration, go to the project you want to update, then click "Manage Project" and select "Add Iteration", as seen below: Upload and submit the new graphics, and you're good to go!
