Team visibility enables newly registered users to join existing teams on Lokalise, eliminating the need for you to manually add new contributors. They can join by themselves.

Please note that this feature differs from public signup:

  • Public signup allows any user to join a translation project with an invitation link.

  • Team visibility, however, restricts joining to users whose email addresses have the appropriate domain. Lokalise will verify the domain part of the email addresses, permitting users to join a team only if their email domain matches the team's. For instance, can join a team associated with the domain but cannot join a team under the domain.

Getting started

To get started with the team visibility feature, click on your team avatar in the bottom left corner and choose Team settings. Then proceed to the Advanced security tab and find the Team visibility section:

To start using this feature you must verify your email and domain, therefore click on the Verify your email and domain and choose to send a verification link now.

Open your inbox and find a verification email from Lokalise:

Click Confirm your account and return to the Advanced security tab.

Team visibility settings

Now you'll be able to set up team visibility settings:

  • Invite only (default value) β€” newly registered users won't be able to join your team. You'll have to invite every user manually.

  • Open to anyone with [domain] β€” all newly registered users whose email domain parts match the one provided for your team will be able to join. You won't have to perform any additional approvals.

  • Request only β€” all newly registered users with the proper email address will be able to find your team and ask to join. However, you'll have to explicitly approve every user who is willing to join the team.

If your team domain has changed, you can click Change domain, enter a new email address, and request a new verification link.

Joining teams upon registration

Once you have set team visibility settings to Open to anyone or Request only, all newly registered users with the proper email addresses will be able to join or at least request to join your team:

If team admins has enabled request only team visibility, you'll have to wait for your request to be approved:

Approving join requests

Once a user has requested to join a team, admins will receive an email notification and will be able to approve or reject the request.

To manage requests, proceed to Team settings > Team and find the Awaiting requests section:

Here simply click Accept or Reject.
