Registration

You can register for a free 30 day trial here: https://my.folderit.com/site/signup

The e-mail address you use as your user name will be the (first) administrator of the account. It is recommended to use a generic email address (info@…. , accounting@… etc) for the initial registration, so it will not be tied to a concrete person’s name which will be undesireable if the person leaves the company. The first registered user of your company will also be the user account that is billed for the subscription.

This is what we recommend:

  1. Register the first user with a generic non-personal email like info@companyname.domain or what ever you have. Make sure the email address actually exists and you are able to receive mail on it. This user will be the Owner of your company account and Folderit subscription.
  2. Add users to your team.
    You can also add yourself to the team as you were using the generic email address until now. If you want, you can add yourself as your team member with the yourname@yourcompany.domain address that you regularly use. You can give yourself admin-level access in the next step! Then you can use an account with your own name on daily basis and only utilize the generic first account for subscription payments and as the Owner of the account. Even if you yourself leave the company one day, this generic Owner account will be untouched of that change.
  3. Give other users administrator access to the whole account. If you want to.

What happens after the trial period is over?

After the trial is up, no paid plan automatically starts — unless you have deliberately chosen a paid plan and inputted your credit card information.

After the trial period your data will not be automatically deleted but you are unable to add more data or share the resources with other people. You can manually remove your data by deleting all files and folders and emptying the Recycle Bin.
