Step 2: Get your domain invitation code

If you have already received a domain invitation code from us by email, skip to Step 3.

Contact us at support@stack.services if you want to get your own domain. Please provide us with some basic information such as the number of stacks you need, the number of users, and what you want to use the Learning Toolbox for. As soon as the order for your domain is confirmed, we will send you an email with the domain invitation code that you need for Step 3 to unlock your domain.

Step 3: Unlock your domain

If this is your first domain, just follow the steps below. If you already have a domain, go to the section “I already have a domain”.

  2. Go to your account settings.
  3. Enter your domain invitation code.
  4. Click Redeem.

If you need more help with this process, see the tutorial Order and unlock your domain.

Step 4: Configure your domain settings

The domain settings allow you to select the basic style and features of your domain. 

Note: You need to be a domain administrator or the owner of the domain if you want to change the domain settings. Please contact a domain administrator or the domain owner to give you the right permissions.

  1. On your computer, sign in to the Learning Toolbox.
  2. In the top right corner, just below “Signed in”, click the cogwheel () to open the domain admin panel.
  3. On the left navigation panel, click Settings.
  4. Provide the required and optional domain setting information
    • Domain name: you can change the domain name you provided when you unlocked the domain (Step 3).
    • Description: an optional description of the domain.
    • Domain image: you can either upload your own image or pick a copyright free  image from Pixabay. This image will be used as the logo of the new domain.
    • Domain Authors can edit every stack: if on, any author can edit other author’s stacks too.
    • Set maximum stacks per Domain Author: if on, authors can only create stacks up to the specified limit.
    • Restrict stack access to Domain Users: if on, only users registered in the domain can access the stacks of that domain.
    • FAQ slug: the extension string for the support URL. For instance if the slug is ‘my_help’, then “Support” in the top menu bar links to support.ltb.io/my_help.
  5. Click Save.

If you need more help with this process, see the section “Edit your domain settings” in the tutorial Setting up your domain.

Step 5: Add users to your domain

Now that your domain is ready, the only thing left is to add users and authors to the domain. 

Note: Users of anonymous stacks don’t need to be registered in your domain. They can access these stacks without logging into the Learning Toolbox.

There are two ways you can add a user to your domain: a fast one and a slow one.

Add users via a subscription code (fast)

  1. Go to the domain admin panel (see Step 4.2).
  2. In the left navigation panel, click Member Subscription.
  3. Click Create Subscription Code for users or for authors.
    • This generates a QR code and a link that you can give your users or authors. When they scan the code or click on the link, they will be asked to create a Learning Toolbox account and are then automatically added to your domain.
    • You can optionally select a User Subscription Stack from your domain that will open once the user or author has created their account.
    • You can renew the QR code and link at any time, which invalidates the previous code and link.
  4. Put up the QR code on a wall for people to scan or send them the subscription link for instance via email or Whatsapp.

Add users manually (slow)

  1. You need to ask your users to sign up and create an account in the Learning Toolbox.
  2. They should then provide you with the email address they used to sign up.
  3. Go to the domain admin panel (see Step 4.2).
  4. In the left navigation panel, click Member Management.
  5. Click the plus sign () to the top right.
  6. Add the email address of your user.
    • You need to add each user individually in this way.
  7. The email address has been added under “User”. You can change the user role and delete the user with the four buttons () to the right of the username and email address.

If you need more help with this process, see the section “Create member invitation links” in the tutorial Setting up your domain.
