User Account and Team Account

By Saiki Tanabe Jul 22, 2013

When you sign up, Sketchboard creates a user account that is called My Profile in Sketchboard. In case you have not been earlier added to a team on Sketchboard, Sketchboard creates a default team account for you.

You can add team members to the team and share boards with them easily and securily. By default boards are private and you need to select the boards that are shared.

User Account == My Profile

You can update your Sketchboard profile from “Settings” => “My Profile”. Display name is something that is shown e.g. on board when collaborating with others. Update your newsletter and email notifications from here. Avatar can be changed from Gravatar.com.
