Making your room public
Written by Gonzo
Updated over a week ago

By default, rooms are private; if you want to have your room public for everyone on TryHackMe to join, it will need to be reviewed first. Please read about the Room Testing process to learn more about how your room is reviewed.

You can still share your room with friends/colleagues/students without having it published to the broader community. To learn how to do so, read about sharing your room privately.

Publishing your Room

To publish your room, you will need to navigate to the "General" tab in the management view of your room:

Your room will be marked as "False." Change this setting to "True" to enter your room into the queue, like in the screenshot below:

Your room will be marked as "Submitted." This is confirmation that your room is in the queue but has not been assigned to a room tester:

Once your room is assigned to a room tester, the status will change to "Evaluating," as shown in the screenshot below:

This phase can take a couple of days because many rooms are waiting to be tested - so please be patient!

You can look at the elements that room testers refer to when testing your room in the general guidelines. If the room tester approves the room, the status will change to "Approved."

The room reviewer will reject your room if it does not meet the standards outlined in the creation notes, amongst other things. If this is the case, your view will reflect these changes:

Where the room reviewer will leave feedback in the form of comments, these are located at the bottom of the same "General" tab for you to review. Please rectify the issues raised in the comments and resubmit once ready!

However, if your room meets the standards, your room will be approved and marked as "Ready" like below:

Please note that although your room has been approved, it will now enter the final stage before publication. It will then be placed in another queue with other "Approved" rooms, which will be released according to the release schedule.

For the final update, once your room has been published onto TryHackMe, it will be marked as "Accepted" and announced in the community Discord:

On behalf of TryHackMe, thank you for taking the time to create content for the community!
