Congratulations on taking the first step to improve how your team collaborates! If you are looking to set up Flock for your company, you are in the right place. Here’s a quick video that introduces you to Flock…
And here is a 4-step guide to help you get started and get your team off the ground.
Step 1: Create your team
Start by creating a team for your entire organization or for just a group of users.
When you sign up for Flock, you will be prompted to create a team. We recommend you use your work email to sign up and create your team. This way, anyone in your organization can sign up for Flock with their work email (with the same email domain), find your team, and join it easily.
Step 2: Invite colleagues to Flock
Flock works best when you have friends to work together with. Invite your project team, your work buddies or anyone at work who can help you evaluate Flock.

Step 3: Start a new channel
Channels are where team members discuss projects, share knowledge, and connect around shared interests. You can create private channels for closed discussions or public channels that teammates can easily discover and join to have meaningful conversations.
As soon as they join the team, every team member is automatically added to 2 default channels.
- Announcements, a one-way channel for team-wide broadcasts from the admins.
- Team Hub, an all-hands channel where everyone can share ideas.

Step 4: Send a welcome message
Kick things off with a welcome message in the Team Hub channel (that everyone joining your team will be a part of). You can use this opportunity to introduce Flock to your team, and share a link to our getting started guide for team members.
