These are the steps to create a new account for admins. If you are a manager or employee trying to join your employer's account, please click here.

If you already have an account and would like to add another one, click here.

Before we dive into the steps for creating a new Sling account, it's important to understand some basic things about the difference between an account and a profile on an account.

When an admin creates a new Sling account, they are also added as the very first profile on the account, and they have access to add employees, create schedules, and adjust settings that will affect the whole account.

Each time someone is invited to join the account, they are able to establish their own profile for that account. It's important to note that admins and managers are responsible for managing the active profiles on any Sling account, and that employees who join are not able to delete their own Sling profiles.

Read on for more details about creating an account through the web or with your smartphone.

From the web

To start using Sling for your business, go to and enter your email address, then click Get started

On the next screen, we ask that you confirm the type of account you intend to create. This flow is for admins who will be creating schedules and adding other users. In that case, you would choose to "create a new Sling account."

If you meant to join an account, you have the option to try and connect with your company's existing account using the second option.

Next, enter a few more details and create your password. You also have the option to create your account using your Google account info. Note that by entering your info and proceeding to the next step, you acknowledge that you have read and accepted our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy.

You'll be prompted to check for your verification email, so you can confirm your account and invite employees.

Note that you will not be able to proceed with certain actions within your Sling account until you have verified your email address by responding to a message sent to your inbox.

We'll ask you to enter the name of your company, select your industry, and tell us your organization's size.

We'll also give you a chance to add some positions for your business. If you'd like to do this later, or prefer to import your positions via an integration, you can skip this step.

You can also add employees as you're creating the account, but again, if you prefer to wait or want to import them from an integration or a spreadsheet, you can skip this step.

Once all the above steps are completed, click on "Start scheduling," and you'll be redirected to your account so you can start customizing your company settings and create schedules.  

Remember to bookmark for easy access!

From the mobile app

First, you will need to download one of our mobile apps:

Open the app, and tap the Sign up button.

Confirm that you would like to create a new account (instead of joining an existing one) on the next screen.

Provide your first and last name, email address, phone number (optional), and a password. You can also create an account using your Google or Apple credentials. Click Sign up to move to the next step.

Finally, tell us your company name, industry, and number of employees. Click Get started to finish creating the account.

You'll be taken right into your new account so you can start scheduling! Just remember to check for an email from Sling to verify your email address so you can invite your employees to the account.
