AI-guided discussion boards

Co-create engaging discussion boards with AI. The AI generates suggestions that you can reject, edit, or approve, giving you complete control while benefiting from its creative input.

Share a link that automatically generates a copy of your padlet on the recipient's account. Auto-remake links make it easy to distribute individual worksheet padlets to students without manual copying or coordination.

Number, date, single-select, and button fields

These fields require certain answer types and offer custom auto-formatting for responses. Whether you're conducting surveys, collecting RSVPs, or organizing information, custom fields make structured data collection easy.

Major updates to accessibility

We added focusable disabled buttons, better landmarks, alt text for images, and a "Skip to content" link. These updates ensure a smoother, more inclusive experience for those who rely on screen readers or navigate using a keyboard.

Required fields

You are now able to require visitors to fill out certain fields before publishing posts. You can require that visitors fill out the subject, body, or any custom fields you’ve added.

Transfer padlets between workspaces

Many of you use Padlet personally and professionally. It's good to keep these accounts separate, but sometimes it's valuable to transfer padlets back and forth. You can now transfer padlets between workspaces.

New visitor permission role: Commenter

Visitors with the "Commenter" permission role will only be able to comment on posts. They will not be able to add or edit new posts. Along with this update, anyone with the “Reader” permission will now no longer be able to comment.

Next feature release: Summer 2024

Our next set of new features will arrive in the Summer.
