Manage teams in the account

As an account administrator, you can view, create, edit and delete teams in the account from the Teams tab in the Account administration tool. The Teams tab lists the teams and includes the team description, administrator, number of members and workspaces, and creation date.


A team can include any number of account members, and an account member can be added to any number of teams. Teams can be competency based (such as IT, marketing, sales, or design) where team members work across different projects with a need to follow up on the work for the team as a whole. Teams can also be cross-functional, representing groups of people who for some reason need to keep in touch with each other. 

All team members have access to the My Teams tab where each member can communicate within the team and see the work to be done by team members across workspaces.

To create a team: 

  1. Click the tool selector Tool selector.png in the top navigation bar and select Account administration.
