1Password for Teams: Getting Started (Admin)

Starting your admin adventure with 1Password for Teams

Whew! Tuesday was an exciting day for the AgileBits family. In case you missed our big announcement, we’ve been working on a great new solution that makes it super simple to share secrets securely with your team. (Say that three times fast!)

We hope you’ve already signed up to reserve your team name. We’re letting people into the beta just as fast as we can. If you’ve already gotten your golden ticket, you’re probably pretty excited to get 1Password for Teams set up. So many new and exciting things to play with, but where to start? Let’s start at the very beginning. A very good place to start.

After you’ve signed in to your 1Password for Teams account, your adventure begins on the Home page. This is where you will find the vaults you can access. Initially, you will see Your Vault and the Everyone Vault on this page. Let’s get things rolling by creating a new vault for your team.

Anything that has to do with managing your 1Password for Teams account is done in the Admin Console. Head over there by clicking the Team menu in the top right corner and selecting the Admin Console menu option.

Go ahead, seize the day and create a new vault now: while in the Admin Console, click the Vaults tab. On the Vaults page, click the + button to create a new vault. There’s no limit to the number of vaults you can create, and vaults can be shared with some or all of your teammates.

Every excellent adventure needs a crew, so click the Invitations tab in the Admin Console to invite your team members aboard. Send out email invitations to everyone, or use the special link that 1Password for Teams generates for you.

To add a teammate to a vault, two things need to happen: they must accept the invitation you sent them, and you must approve them. Once a user has accepted their invite, you can return to the Admin Console and confirm their membership.

Now you’ve got your vaults and your team. You’re almost ready to take off. All you need to do is decide who gets access to which vault. On the Vaults page, select the vault you want to share and click on Manage Access. Simply select the people you would like to add to this vault and it will show up immediately on their Home page.

I hope you’ve enjoyed the guided tour so far. Continue the adventure on your own by reading the Getting Started guide for admins, and stay tuned for more posts.
