How to automatically join or request to join a Grammarly Business subscription

Who has access?
- Grammarly for Business teams with a non-generic domain and not using SSO

To enable your team members to join your Grammarly Business subscription quicker, you can allow them to discover your subscription and instantly join it when they sign up for a Grammarly account using your organization’s email domain. This means your colleagues would spend less time waiting for access and allows you to expand access to Grammarly to your whole team efficiently.

Alternatively, your team members can request to join your organization’s subscription directly from their accounts, and you can accept or decline their requests.

For admins: 

After you’ve just signed up for Grammarly Business, you’ll be prompted to ​​invite your team members by email:

By default, the option to allow anyone with your organization’s domain to instantly join your subscription is set to on. You can uncheck this setting to turn it off for your team. In this case, team members with a matching domain can request to join your subscription, and you can accept or decline their requests.

You can also change these settings on the Invite Settings page:

  • To have the option to approve or reject your team members’ requests to join your subscription, check the Require admin approval box.
  • If you’d like to manage who can join your subscription yourself, select Only invited colleagues can join your account.

If the Require admin approval box is checked, team members cannot join your Grammarly Business subscription independently. Instead, they can submit requests to join your subscription, and you will need to either accept or decline their requests.

To access the membership requests page, navigate to the Members page and select the Membership requests tab at the top. From there, you can review the pending membership requests and accept or decline them.

Admins can either accept requests directly from the email notifications they receive or review all pending requests on their membership requests page.

When a membership request is accepted, the person who submitted it is notified accordingly.

Note: Membership requests are also automatically voided if no action is taken within fourteen days.

Billing process

If all seats in your subscription have been allotted, additional seats will be automatically added when more team members join by either discovering your subscription at the sign-up or after you’ve accepted their requests to join. You will be charged for the additional seats in 60 days.

The charge date for the additional seats will be shown on the Subscription page under the number of additional seats in use:

You can update or reallocate seats anytime before that date. To learn more, check out this article: About true-up billing

For team members: 

Team members can instantly join their organization’s Grammarly Business subscription upon account creation if the following conditions are met:

  • Their email domain matches an active Grammarly Business subscription that does not use SAML single sign-on (SSO) for authentication.
  • The subscription admin has enabled the option for team members with matching domains to discover and join the subscription.

To join your team’s subscription, please follow the steps below:

  1. Go to www.grammarly.com/signup
  2. Enter your name, your corporate email address, and password. You may be prompted to verify your account by entering a six-digit verification code sent to your email address.
  3. If your team is already on Grammarly Business, you’ll be redirected to a page where you can select your specific team (you’ll see the team name and its admin). Please select the team you’d like to join from the list and click Join team:Prompt to join.png
  4. You will be instantly added to your team’s subscription and receive access to all advanced features, as well as team features set up by your organization. Next, click Continue to finalize your onboarding process.

If you do not see the section titled Join your team to benefit from exclusive features, it means there are no active Grammarly Business subscriptions that you can join at this time.

Alternatively, if your organization’s Grammarly Business admin has allowed team members to request to join their subscription, you can send a membership request upon account creation or from within your existing account.

If you already have a Grammarly account, follow these steps to request to join your team’s subscription:

  1. Go to your Profile page.
  2. Navigate to the Try Grammarly Business tab on the left side of the page.
  3. In the section titled Join your team on Grammarly Business, click Send a request to join your team.

Your request to join the subscription will be sent to its admin, and you’ll be notified when it’s accepted or declined.

If the admin declines your request, you will see a corresponding message on the Try Grammarly Business page.

If you do not see the section titled Join your team on Grammarly Business, it means there are no active Grammarly Business subscriptions you can request to join now.

Note: If you haven’t created a Grammarly account yet, you can do so and request to join your team’s subscription directly from this page: grammarly.com/request-to-join
