How to create a new organization (for existing users)

If you are a new user, please visit our pricing page ( and select the plan you are interested in to create your account and begin your trial. These instructions are intended for existing abstract users who want to create their own organization, rather than joining an existing one. 

  • New organizations can only be created from the web app, not the desktop app. To access the web app:
    • Open a web browser (such as Chrome, Safari, or Firefox)
    • Go to:
  • If you are prompted to log in, enter your username and password to log in to your account. Users can join multiple organizations, so you do not need to create a new account to create a new organization. 
  • From your Abstract homepage, click on the Organization switcher drop down menu in the top left, next to your organization name. In this example, the name of my current organization is ‘Dani’s Testing Pro”’


  • At the bottom of the menu, click “Create New Organization”


  • Enter a name for your new organization, accept the Terms and Conditions, and click “Create New Organization”. In this example, I used the name "Example Organization".


  • You will now be redirected to the homepage for your new organization! 


  • From here, you can click on the drop down menu again to navigate to your People and Teams page to invite new users, or the Organization Settings page to make changes to your plan or billing information. 
  • As a note: all new organizations are automatically placed on an Abstract Pro Monthly plan, with a 14-day free trial.
