Join a Team
Before you start editing, you’re going to need an iFixit account. You also need to join a team, even if you are working individually. Being on a team allows us to track your work and gives you student privileges that prevent other users from editing your work.
Use your name and school email when signing up for the account.
Make sure to select the appropriate information from the drop-down menus. If you add yourself to the wrong team, just click "Leave my team" and try again.
Team tags follow this format: School-InstructorLastName-T#S#G#. For example, if you are attending Cal Poly in Dr. Jon Doe's class, in Fall 2018, assigned to section 4, group 7, your team tag will be: CPSU-DOE-F18S4G7.
Hold up there!
Don’t go it alone. You need to join a student team. Even if you are a totally awesome team of one. That’s right, even if you are working alone, you need to join a student team before you move on. On a team? Go ahead and move on!
