An organization is a group of people who are using Honey to communicate. In most cases, an organization is a company or a specific team within a company.
For most of you, your organization’s admins will have already set up your organization. But If you’re the first member of your team to join Honey, setting up your organization is a critical step in getting your team up and running! From avatar photos to admin settings, this step-by-step guide will help you get your new Honey organization buzzing in no time.
Step 1. Name your organization and add an avatar.
To set your organization’s name, description, and avatar, click your avatar photo in the top right-hand corner of your screen. Select ‘Admin’ from the drop-down menu. Next click ‘settings’ at the top right.
From here, you can add or edit your organization’s name, description, or avatar photo. You can edit these again at any time!
Step 2: Create your topics and add some content.
Topics allow you and your colleagues to group Honey posts based on theme or project. For example, your team may have topics for Office Announcements, Industry Research or Water Cooler Talk (for the fun stuff like cat videos and hilarious GIFs).
To create your organization’s topics, open your left navigation panel by clicking ‘Menu’ at the top left-hand corner of your screen. Select ‘Topics’ and click the ‘Create new topic’ button.
It’s easier for new Honey users to get started when they join an organization that has been populated with a bit of content. Add a few posts to each topic to get your team’s conversations going.
Click the orange post box at the top right to add a new post!

Step 3: Get to know your admin dash and settings menus.
Your admin settings menus help you edit and manage everything within your organization, from member invites to billing options.
To view all of your admin menus, click your avatar in the top right and select ‘Admin’ from the drop down. Click the tabs at the top of the page to browse your settings pages.

Step 4: Select your organization’s invite and topic creation permissions.
These toggles allow you to control specific permissions throughout your entire organization. Each allows you to limit specific actions to just organization administrators, as opposed to everyone in the organization.
To set your organization’s permissions, first click your avatar photo in the top right-hand corner of your screen next to the orange post button. Select ‘Admin’ from the drop-down menu. Then click ‘settings’ at the top right and scroll to the bottom of the page.

Step 5: Add or edit your organization’s trusted domains.
Trusted domains make it easy for others in your team to join your organization on Honey. When a domain (ex: @acmecorp.com) is added as a trusted domain, anyone else who joins Honey — either via the sign up page or via invite — with an email address from that domain (ex: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com etc), will automatically be added to your organization.
Trusted domains are also helpful if you work at a company with global offices that use international domains. (ex: @dundermifflin.co.uk). Whitelisting your international domains will ensure your global workforce can interact within the same Honey organization.
To add or edit your organization’s trusted domains, first click your avatar photo in the top right-hand corner of your screen. Select ‘Admin’ from the drop-down menu. Then click ‘domains’ at the top of the page.
Step 6: Invite Your Team!
Now that your organization is set up, your permissions are set, and you’ve created a few topics to get the conversation started, it’s time to invite your team!
To invite new members, click ‘Menu’ at the top left of your screen to open your navigation panel, then click ‘People.’ Once on the people page, click the ‘Add Member’ button and invite your team!
