There are a few different ways you can create your team structure within Blink - it all depends on how your organization is structure and who needs to speak to who. As a best practice, we encourage you to mirror your organizational structure so that it is familiar to you and your workforce.
👪 What is a Team?
Teams are the foundation of your Blink structure. They are how you group your employees together and define what each user sees and has access to throughout Blink. This ensures that content is relevant to each user, and they only have access to what they need.
⚛️ Why create your team structure?
Every piece of content added to the Feed or Hub has to be assigned an audience. The audience can be made up of a single Team or a group of Teams. Therefore, Teams are vital in ensuring each user has access to what they need.
It is also important to create your Team structure before importing your users. By doing this, you will be able to automate adding users to designated Teams during the bulk user import process rather than manually adding users to Teams post-import.
🎨 Who can create teams?
Only two types of users can create Teams within the Admin Portal: Organization Admins and Content Moderators
💡 Team Structure Recommendations
By default, an all-encompassing company-wide team will automatically be created, which will include all users in your Blink organization. We recommend organizing your teams by their department, location, and/or roles.
