This will take you to the ThreadBoxes page, where you can see those that you’ve already created.  Click on any ThreadBox to open and manage it.  To create a new one, click on “Add your own” at the top-right corner of the page.



On the pop-up window, enter the basic information about your ThreadBox.

  • Title: The title of your ThreadBox.
  • Description (optional): A description of your ThreadBox.
  • Allow other people to submit VoiceThreads?: Check this box if you want other people to be able to submit new VoiceThreads to your collection.
  • Require admin approval of submitted VoiceThreads before displaying them: If you do allow others to submit VoiceThreads, this option allows you to review them before they become visible in the collection.
