Start with a pilot team
Invite a few team members.
Choose a small group of people you work with closely and send them invitations from within the Digital Pigeon App. Once they accept, you'll be able to see their activities in your activities list.
Collect your tools to get work done.
Integrate your address books and Dropbox accounts.
Encourage your team to download our apps.
Using our apps is a much better experience all around, so we recommend you and your team do so.
Once your pilot team is running smoothly, it’s time to think ahead for how to set up the rest of your organisation for success.
Now that your pilot team is up and running, Team Admins and Owners can invite new team members to Digital Pigeon from the Users tab.
Add more Owners and Admins
It’s lonely being the only Admin on a team. Appoint additional Owners and Admins early on — it’s good practice for each team to have at least two Owners and Admins, since those roles have access to team-wide preferences and permissions, such as invites.
There are four different roles a person can have on a Digital Pigeon team, each with their own level of permissions:
Owner – Team Owners control the highest-level security and administrative settings: payments (billing and subscriptions), invitations to new team members, other team members' level of access and customisable branding. They have complete oversight of the account and all activity on it.
Admin – Administrators are able to manage members, invite users, customise branding and handle other tasks. We recommend that every team have several Administrators.
Power User – Power Users have access to standard features: they can see all activity on the account, and send, share and recieve files.
User – These users can only see the activity on the account relating to their own files. They are typically used by teams to loop in contractors or interns without giving them access to everything else.
