In this article, you will learn how to edit your wiki's name and view the source Google Drive folder that is powering your wiki, how to view and add members (selecting specific access levels for each person), and how to change your wiki's favicon!

You can access your settings by clicking the down arrow to the right of your wiki's name, and then selecting the option that says Manage this wiki:

From here, you will be taken directly to the page from where you will be able to manage your wiki.

Tip: when you're the owner of a wiki, you will see the option in red there saying Delete Wiki. When you're a regular member, the option will say Remove me from the Wiki.

Next up are the things you can do, and how to do them.


From your Details page, you are able to rename your wiki and access your source folder in your Google Drive.

Note: Your Pilot wiki corresponds to a folder in Google Drive. If you edit your wiki's name in Pilot, it will also be reflected in your Google Drive folder, and vice-versa πŸ˜‰

When you are finished with your name edit, don't forget to click the Save Settings button at the bottom! Upon doing this, a green loading bar will appear at the bottom right of your screen to confirm that your updates are being implemented.


From your Members page, you can:

  • See at a glance how many people are in your wiki

  • Verify the access level each person has (this info appears to the right of each person's email address)

  • Add new members to your wiki and select their access levels between owner, editor, and viewer.

To add a new member, simply click the Add user option that appears on the right-hand side of the window. Fill in the prompt with their email address, select their appropriate access level, and click on the big blue Add User. It's that simple.

Note: Because Pilot and Google Drive are connected, adding a new member in Pilot will also add them to the corresponding Google Drive. Access levels will be respected.

Look & Feel

From the Look & Feel page, you are able to upload a new favicon image for your wiki.

Clicking Upload image will take you to your file manager, from where you should be able to select the image you wish to have as your favicon.

Please double-check that you're following the best practices from the tips shown above:

  • The format should be .png or .jpg

Good to know: We recommended your favicon size not to be larger than a 144px x 144px

Once you upload your thumbnail image, make sure to adjust the image by dragging the corners of the selected space until your desired size. Next, click Finish Cropping:

Once that is done, this is what it will look like:

Don't forget to hit that Save Settings button, and you're golden!
