Lists

You can create lists and all the organization's members will be able to add / remove bookmarks to them.

Members may also subscribe to lists and get notified every time a bookmark is added.

You can manage and add content to your organizations from the web and mobile interfaces.

Switching Workspaces

When you are a member of at least one org, you can switch between your personal context and that of a workspace by clicking your avatar in the top right corner.

The currently active workspace is always visible on the left sidebar.

You can click it for options to manage the organization.

Adding Bookmarks

You may assign an existing or a new bookmark to an organization you're member of, by selecting from the dropdown as in the image below.

Public Organizations

Organizations are private by default, which means that nobody except members of the org, can see any of its content.

However if you want to, you can make you organization public. By making the organization public, you can expose lists to the public and Tefter users may even subscribe to such lists.

To make your organization public, first go to your org and select “Privacy Settings”.

Then select the checkbox to make it public and click “Save Changes”.

That's it!
