How to set up your account

There are two ways to create a new account on Baserow. You can either create an account directly from the sign up page or after being invited by an existing group admin.

Create an account from the signup page

To create a new account directly, go to the sign up page and enter your email address, name and password with a minimum of 8 characters. Click the Sign up button to be redirected to your dashboard.

Create an account from an invite

Shortly after being invited to create your Baserow account, you should receive an email that a user has invited you to collaborate in a group. If you don’t have an existing account, you will be prompted to create one.

Baserow will autofill the email address invited. If you prefer to have a different email address, make a request to the group admin to add an alternative email address.
