What's a Project Team?
A regular (=organisational) team is created by the admin of the system and changes rarely, a project team is short-lived and is created by the users of the system. Everyone can create a project team and add people to that team. Of course the people that will be added will have to approve their team membership first.
Project teams on intuo
Project teams are disabled on intuo platforms by default. But if you want to work with project teams, you should contact your success manager. They will enable this feature for you.
When enabled, admins can add project teams. If you want team leaders to be able to add project teams, this setting should be enabled in the Studio.
How to add a project team
The process is very similar to how you would create a regular team. You just have to change the type of the team at the bottom.
What's the difference between a project team and an organisational team?
Project teams have almost the same scope and permissions as normal organisational teams. But there are some differences:
- Project teams cannot be hierarchical
- When a project team leader or admin adds a user to their project team, the user first has to confirm this. If the user declines the invite, they will not join the project team.
- Conversations done with other team leader are not visible for the project team leader(s)
Project team - User
If a user is invited to be part of a project team, this will be visible on the Feed of the user:
If he/she clicks on it, a pop-up screen will appear with the conditions of the project team. You can accept or decline the invitation.
