Can I be in multiple Glips?

Yes, but unless you need to use different email addresses there’s generally no need to have more than one account. This is the case whether you work at a small company, a very large company, or even when you need to communicate with people from many companies other than your own.

All employees of a company are always part of the same Glip. Unlike with other services, there’s never a need to have multiple instances of Glip within a company. In fact, if your company has email addresses on a private domain (e.g., @acme.com), we will enforce this. Everyone with an @acme.com email address, for example, will automatically be in the same Glip.

Is your company very large, with a lot of employees that you don’t actually work with? That’s perfectly fine, and expected. Think of the People page on Glip as a corporate directory of sorts. You’ll see all employees listed there, and in the All Employees team that Glip automatically maintains for you, but you'll only really be communicating with your immediate co-workers. No one else can see the teams you create, except the people you’ve explicitly added to those teams (unless you make them public).

In other words, everyone from your company can happily co-exist in the same Glip without getting in each other’s way. And there’s never a need to log into a separate Glip, or resort to email, because you suddenly need to communicate with someone from a different part of the company.

Another key aspect of Glip is that, while you can only be an employee of one company on Glip, you can be a guest in an unlimited number of companies. Do you have lots of vendors, clients or partners that you want to work with on Glip, or are even already on Glip? You can do this all from one Glip account, without having to worry about anyone from outside of your company (i.e., guests) seeing people or teams that they shouldn’t.

    The question was, can I be in Multiple glips(i.e. I logged in with a non work email, and now I constantly am logged into that email address) I need to ADD my work email address glip. This answer says, yes you can do that...then explains why you do not need to, but never explains how to log into multiple glips at once...

    Agree with Zack. In my case, I'm working in 3 companies and Slack gives me the option to sign in to multiple accounts at the same time. Glip should consider to add this feature.

    I vote for this feature as well. I just switched from Slack for one company, but still need to use it for another because I can apparently only use Glip for one company...

    +1 to have one multi account.

    This is still a very important potential feature for me. Any chance it can be developed this year?

    The situation of being in a large company where we don't all work together is the one I'm having issues with. Some groups have found Glip to be a great tool and now others want to try using it also. I get that we don't have to communicate with everyone that signed up from the same private domain, but we still see everyone's events on the calendar, and that's a major "getting in each other's way" problem., especially for a large company like ours. Is there a way to choose to only see people you choose to add to your groups on the calendar?

    Hi Leo - The only reason I can think of that you'd be seeing everyone's calendar events is if they were getting posted into the All Employees team. Otherwise, in general on Glip you only see content that's been posted into conversations in which you are a member.

    If that's the case, I think you just need to guide people to only use the All Employees team for things that truly apply to everyone in the company.

    Thank you, David. I'm new to this, so please bare with me. Maybe I'm just not seeing the way to do what I'm trying to. Is there a way to create a task or a calendar entry that does NOT go into the All Employees calendar/tasks? When I try to create a task or event, I don't see an option to do so under a specific group.
