ONLY Organisation Administrators and Content Moderators can create Teams from within the Admin portal.

How to create a Team

  1. Go to the Admin portal
  2. Select Teams
  3. Click Create Team
  4. Give your new Team a name and description
  5. If you'd like to add members, you can do this now too
  6. Edit the Team permissions and privacy
  7. Click Create
  8. You can now add a Team icon/photo

NOTE: you can add/remove members, delete or edit the Team at any time.

Create your Team structure before importing your users, so you can add teams to the import user template!

By creating your Team structure first, you will be able to add the Teams to your Import user template

This will automate adding your users to the correct Teams on import, rather than manually adding them to Teams post-import.

How to edit a Team

  2. Select the Team you'd like to edit

From here you are able to amend who gets the Team Admin status and also add more members to the Team!

To add more members you should:

  1. Use the Search bar at the top to find the user you are wanting to add

  2. We recommend you have more than one Team Admin for each Team!

    Once a Team is deleted, it is unrecoverable.
