Team groups

What is a "Team" group?

A team group can be used when you want to define a set of users as having a special role in the organization. An organization owner puts all affected users in a particular group and marks that group as the team group on the organization settings screen.

Note: The team group does not have to be named "Team." Any previously existing group can be designated as a team group. 

What does a team group do?

If a team group is defined, it allows an extra level of group permissions to be set. Group access can be restricted to just members of the team group, preventing access by other members of the organization.

What are some examples of how team groups can be used?

    • Team group are employees

    • Team group are primary contributors, or people with merge permissions
