What's a Project Team?

A project team is meant to be a group of people that temporarily work together on a certain project. Users are invited to join the team. This contrasts with a regular (=organisational) team that is created by the admin of the system and fits into a more traditional, rigid company hierarchy. Users are assigned to these teams by the admin.

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 create 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.
