Create an Account

  • Updated

You can create your Gather account before or after you create a Space! By default, when you try out Gather, you are an anonymous guest—you are not required to sign in or create an account. If you choose to create an account, it's completely FREE! You don't pay a thing until you make reservations for events or subscriptions.

Warning: It's always safest to create an account prior to spending a lot of time customizing a Space. If you're not signed into your account, you will likely lose your Space or changes you've made to your Space when you clear your browser cache.

We provide several ways to create and sign in to your account on our website and in your Gather Space.

Am I logged in?

If you're not sure if you're logged into a Space, click your personal menu (name and status) in the navigation bar. Your email address will display under your name if you are signed in. Also, if you're signed in, the main menu shows Sign Out if you are logged in.  If you are not logged in, the bottom item is Sign in, and you won't see an email beneath your name, as pictured below.

The main menu is open, and the bottom item in the menu displays Sign In, which is outlined in red. To see if you're signed into a Space, open the main menu. The bottom item will show either Sign In or Sign Out, depending on whether you're logged in.

We're delighted you've created an account with us, and we hope you'll love Gather as much as we do.
