Manage Teams and Members
Explore the settings available to manage teams and team members effectively.
When to use
As a team owner, it's important to know how to manage your teams, teams list, and team members to ensure teams work as effectively as possible.
Add Team Members and Manage Team Settings
- Click the three dots next to the team in the Teams list.
- Select Manage team from the list.
We will see 6 tabs running across the top.
This area shows all members of the team including the team owner and any guests. As team owners, we can promote or demote anyone's access from Member to Owner or vice-versa. Simply, click the down-arrow in the Role column next to a team member to change. We can have more than one owner per team.
To add a new team member, click the Add member button and search for a colleague.
This is where our team channels live. Channels are spaces for team members to discuss specific topics. To add a new channel, click the Add channel button.
We can customize our teams from settings. Add a team picture, set member permissions, set guest permissions, specify who can @mention teams and channels, generate a team code, enable gifs, stickers and memes and determine who can manage team tags.
We can see an overview of our team's statistics in the Analytics tab such as how many users, top channels, and engagement with posts.
Apps can be added to teams to extend the capabilities and add more functionality. We can see the apps our team has access to and add more apps from here.
Tags help us target messages towards specific groups of people. We can create tags and manage existing tags from this tab.
Hints & tips
- Only team owners can perform certain tasks such as deleting or archiving a team.
