Welcome to Workplace!
Here's how to set up your colleagues in Workplace, ready to connect and collaborate.
There's just a few things you'll need before you start:
- System administrator access to Workplace (sign up via our website, if you haven't done that yet).
Once you're ready, sign in to Workplace and go to your Admin Panel.
1A. Add a domain
First step is to add your email domain(s) in the Admin Panel.
1B. Verify a domain
Verify in one of 3 ways:
- HTML. Uses an HTML file. You'll need access to your website's root folder.
Check verified domains
1C. Check domain verification
You're now ready to add users to your Workplace, whether or not they have a domain email address.
You can choose to add users manually or automatically.
Check out the options below to see which works best for you.

Now you’re ready to select how users will authenticate themselves when logging in to Workplace.
Users can authenticate themselves by password or using their SSO details.
Take a look at the options below to see which one is best for you.

Can all Workplace emails (particularly invitation emails) reach your users?
Here’s where you make sure that these emails are not blocked by your organization's email settings.
All that’s left now is to invite your colleagues to claim their Workplace account.
Use Workplace's Admin Panel to invite all users, invite selected users, or invite individual users.
