Adding a new team member

Only Editors-in-Chief may create new team members.

To create a new team member, an Editor-in-Chief will login to the yearbook. If the left-side menu does not automatically appear, click on the “burger” menu in the top left corner to access it.  Select Manage Team from the left-side menu under the Admin section.

Choose the type of team member you would like to create:

  • Editors-in-Chief have an all-access pass account. They can access book administration tools, submit the yearbook, and create other team members. We recommend limiting this role to one or two people on your team.
  • Editors can work on all aspects of photo and book management. They may be given permission to access portrait photos by the Editors-in-Chief. They can view the Status Report in the Admin section. Assign this role to trusted team members who need to access all parts of the yearbook.
  • Staffers are limited to working on assigned pages. They may upload photos or create photo albums with permission. This role is suitable for younger students or casual contributors.

To create a new team member, select the type you wish to create, then click on the ADD NEW… button in the top right corner.

Complete the form to add your new team member. Fields marked with a * must be completed.

You can change their chosen role at any time by clicking on the dropdown arrow next to the role field.  
Set a password for the team member.

Note that the password can be changed by an Editor-in-Chief at any time.

If COPPA (Child Online Privacy Protection Act) limitations have been set up for your book, you will need parental permission to create an account for children under the age of 13.

To complete the setup, send your team members their login info via an email or direct message.

  • The Memento Yearbook website address:
  • Your School Id
  • If there is more than one book assigned to your school, which one to choose (eg; yearbook versus a supplement).
  • Their username
  • Their password

Why provide an email address when creating your team members?

Team member email addresses are only used to send password reset emails. Team members do not receive login/registration emails. Please send this information to your team members along with their password via your normal method of communication (private email, messenger service).
