Creating a GatherContent account
When you’re ready to sign up for a GatherContent account, you’ll need to first open a free trial. Once your trial period has come to an end, you'll then need to upgrade to a paid subscription. When you upgrade from a trial account to a subscription, all your content and the work you’ve done will remain in your account.

Enter your details
You’re now in your free trial GatherContent account! Your account has full access to all the features of a paid plan and you can add as many users to your account as you like.

Updating your Account Name
To update your Account Name, please follow these steps:
Go to your Account Settings
Click on the 'Update your account name' link and enter the new account name. Then make sure you save your changes.
Tip: You can also update your account sub-domain. This can only be done by the GatherContent team. Please get in touch with us and we'll update this for you. Please note that you can only choose a sub-domain that's still available and not being used by another account.
Working in multiple GatherContent accounts
Users can have multiple GatherContent accounts linked to the same email address. This allows you to work across projects that may be in different GatherContent accounts you own or have been invited to.
Logging in via the 'Choose' screen
If you're already logged in you can go straight to the choose account menu. You'll see a full list of your accounts. You'll be able to select the one you need to access.
From here, you can see the number of active projects in that account.
Switching accounts from the projects view
When you're logged into an account, you can switch to another account you're a part of on the projects view.
Click on your avatar in the top right and from the dropdown list, select switch accounts. When presented with a list of your accounts, choose the one you want to access.
Star accounts for easy access
Hover over the name of an account from the list, and click the star icon to pin it to the top of your list, for easy access.
Viewing inactive accounts
If you're still a part of any old accounts that no longer have a paid subscription, they'll show as inactive in the list.
Create a new account using the same login details
You can create a new account using an email address you've used previously, whilst being logged into GatherContent.
Open a new browser window and go to:
It should recognise you, and ask you to type a new, unique subdomain for your new trial account. Click 'Create my account' and you're done!
Your password for the new account will be the same as your current GatherContent password.
How to white label your account
You can white-label your GatherContent account by changing the account header logo and account login logo.
Go to your Account Settings
Head to the White Label tab
From here you can customise your account header logo and login screen logo.
Once you've made all the changes you'll need to save them so they're applied to your account.
