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.

When content is shared on Blink, an audience has to be assigned to that piece of content. An audience can be made up of one Team or a group of Teams.

When a user is added as a member of a Team, that user will be able to see all content shared to that Team throughout Blink.

For example, when posting to the Feed, you can choose to share your content with individuals or Teams, or a combination of both:

You should know that...

You can ONLY see and share things with the Teams that you are a member of

If you leave a Team you will no longer see that Team's content in the Hub, however any feed posts shared to that team will remain in your feed, so you don't loose any important information.


How are Teams managed?

Teams are managed in the Directory

Just click on the Teams tab in the Directory to view the Teams you are a member of. 

If you are a Team Administrator for a Team, you will be able to manage your Team via the Directory too, see below.

Guidance on Teams

The Teams you have on Blink should mirror the Teams in your organisation.

For example, you can base your Blink Team structure on your organizational structure, or location.

When you create your Blink account, an all-encompassing, company-wide Team will automatically be created which will include all the users you invite to your Blink organization.

Before you invite your users, start by creating some high-level Teams to add your colleagues to. Perhaps one for each Department you have.

Don't create lots of teams unless you really need to - keep it simple to start with. You can add, edit and remove Teams at any time!
