Manage teams in the account

Video: Create and manage teams

As an account administrator, you can view, create, edit and delete teams in the account. A team can include any number of account members, and an account member can be added to any number of teams.

Any account member may create teams from the Teams tab in the Account administration tool.

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.

Assignments from a specific workspace are only displayed if that workspace is published to the Directory and if the boards do not have access rights set for groups.

To create and administrate teams, click the tool selector Tool selector.png in the top navigation bar. Select Account administration and then click the Teams tab.
