Enhanced Team & Collaboration

We’ve also streamlined a few things to make it easier to organize your team and update their permissions. You can now manage the team out of the new “Teams” page.

Team List

Adding New Team Members

You can invite new team members to the organization by clicking the “Add team member” button. You’ll have to decide whether this new team member should be an Owner or Member. The new member just needs to accept the invitation via email and create their password.

Understanding Team roles

  • Owners: Owners have unrestricted access to organization, billing, team settings, and is an Admin on all projects.
