Getting started for team creators

Congrats on taking the first step toward asynchronous work collaboration! Twist gives your team the tools to work together effectively, so you all have more time to focus, create, and (ultimately) disconnect.

Here's how to get started.

Create and board your team

Begin by inviting and onboarding your team:

Learn the lingo

Once you've onboarded your team, it's a good idea to introduce them to the core features of Twist!

Twist is filled with features designed to create a focused and organized workflow for you and your teammates. It may take a while to get to know them all, but here are a few of the big ones to get you started:


1. Channels 

Channels organize your threads into common themes.

For example, you may want to create a Marketing channel that contains all threads about your company's marketing activities, or a Health channel filled with workouts.

2. Threads

Threads are conversations about a single topic. Need to get an overview of all projects for the coming month, or maybe you simply want to discuss book recommendations with your teammates? In both cases, you can start a thread.

3. Inbox

Your Inbox is the place where you can keep track of all threads that relate to you and your work.

You'll have two views in your Inbox: Active and Done. Threads that have updates relevant to you will be in your Active view. Once you're done processing a thread, we recommend that you mark it as done. This will cause the thread to be moved to the Done view.

4. Messages

This is where you can message your teammates directly, whether that's 1-on-1 or in a group message.

Create channels and start threads

Once you've onboarded your team and learned about some of the core Twist features, start creating channels based on current projects your team is working on and start a few threads your team can use to present ideas, collaborate on plans, collect feedback, and share big moments!

We hope this helps get your team off on the right foot with Twist! 🚀
