    First, log in. Then select Account in the upper right corner of your dashboard. Select Team from the menu on the left. Invite new team members by using the Invite button on the right. Input their information and an invitation will be sent to them via email.
    My agency has multiple offices, should we create a profile for each?
    If your offices pitch together or have the same new business contact, we recommend creating one profile for all. If you pitch independently, create a profile for each office and include each office’s location in the name. If you’re creating multiple profiles, contact us and we can create a single login to make updating easier.
    How many cases and pieces of creative can I add to my agency’s profile?
    No limit! Give us everything you’ve got!
    How can I select the content featured on my agency’s profile home page?
    Select the creative, cases, news or clients tabs within your dashboard. Then select the Sort tab on the left. The Sort section/tab is where you can drag and drop your content to the top. The content featured on your home page will be highlighted in orange.
    How is content ordered after selecting?
    Sort all of your content by using the drag and drop function within the Sort section of your creative, cases, news or clients tabs. Keep in mind the orange highlighted content at the top will be featured on your profile’s home page. If you choose not to order your content, it will appear in the order it was uploaded.
    Can I use my agency’s blog posts as news?
    Should I include content from past clients?
    Yes! Marketers and consultants want to see prior work as well. Just be sure to include the end date when adding past clients.
    What media types do you support?
    YouTube and Vimeo. If your content is not hosted on YouTube or Vimeo, we also provide the option to upload PDF or image files.
    What will I see on my agency profile’s analytics page?
    If you have a premium profile you’ll see page views, which can be sorted by year, month, week and day; a geographic heat map; and your profile’s most popular pages. If you have a basic profile, you do not have access to your profile’s analytics. Upgrade here!
    I have confidential work I want Pile consultants to see, but can’t post publicly. What do I do?
    Creative and cases can be uploaded privately for Pile consultants only. When adding private creative or cases, simply check off Private Content (for Pile Consultants only). Your work is now only viewable by the Pile team. The process is the same if you’d like to convert public content to private.
    How do I get my agency featured on Agency Compile’s home page?
    The content on the home page feed pulls from recently uploaded creative and cases. Update your agency’s profile often to get featured!
    My agency’s profile is out-of-date and I don’t have login information.
    If you do not have access to your agency’s profile, register as a new user and we can link you to your agency’s profile.
    Where can we change our membership plan or edit billing details?
    Billing information can be accessed by clicking on the Account icon in the top right-hand corner of your screen, and then selecting Billing from the drop-down menu on the left.
