Congratulations, you have chosen coapp!

Your community platform is still empty and doesn't look like your own platform yet? We want to change that.

Before you invite your community, you should follow these steps to make the user experience really convincing.

  1. Complete your profile

    Be a good role model and complete your own profile. As soon as you invite your team or members, your face will appear in all dialogs.

  2. Add custom domain

    When you create a space, we assign random domains. To personalize your domain click on your profile picture in the upper right corner and select "Manage". Then click Settings at the bottom left and select Domain. Now change your domain (example: and click save.

    Add custom domain

  3. Upload your logo and change colors

    To make coapp really your own social platform, you should upload your logo. You can do this by clicking on Customization in the Settings (see point 2 how to get there). Now you can upload a logo. Don't forget to save it. Here you can find help on how to upload a logo. Directly below the logo uploader you can adjust the colors.

  4. Customize user onboarding

    Your team and new members will be shown the user onboarding when they log in for the first time. You can customize these 4 steps according to your needs. You can do this by clicking on Customization in the Settings (see point 2 how to get there), then scroll down. In the first step you can start with a personal welcome and a team photo. Complete the other steps. The preview on the right side will help you with all steps.

  5. Invite team and user

    Invite your team and your members now. In the Manage area, click on Community > Members in the menu on the left. And then invite everyone! πŸ™Œ After your team has signed up, you can appoint them as admins under Space > Administrators (How to add administrators).

    πŸ‘‰ In the meantime you can fill the feed a bit so that your users don't enter an empty platform. Create your first post and your first project.
