Adding other users to an idea on mobile

Some challenges will allow you to post your idea with other users, as a group, this is called a 'joint submission'.

The joint submissions feature allows you to add a co-author to your idea. A co-author could be someone who has worked on your idea with you, or someone that has agreed to help you develop your idea after you post it. To learn more about how the join submissions feature works, and what it means for you and your co-authors, check out our guide to Posting an idea with other users.
