Create or delete a team

Create teams to manage tasks for specific social accounts, such as content creation, customer engagement, or customer support. Members and social accounts can belong to as many teams as you want.

You must first create a Hootsuite organization and add members to it to create a team. For more information, see the following:

Create a team

Once you've created an organization and added members, you can create teams to group social accounts and members who you want to have access to them. Members and social accounts can be added to multiple teams in the same organization.

Super admins, admins, and team admins can create teams. An organization super admin or admin inherits team admin permissions but is not automatically added as a team member. They must be a member of the team to view team assignments. For information on adding team members, see Add a member to an organization or team.

  1. Go to My profile, and then select Manage accounts and teams.
  2. Select Manage.
  3. Select Add a Team.

  4. Enter a team name, and then select Invite Members. You can select members added to your organization.
  5. Select the social accounts to share, and optionally, upload a profile picture for the organization.
    Create team area showing options for team name, members, and social networks.
  6. Select Create Team.
  7. Repeat these steps to create multiple teams.

Tip: Team members and social accounts can belong to more than one team.

Delete a team

Super admins, admins, or team admins can delete teams. Deleting a team also deletes that team's content library, but it does not delete members or social accounts in the organization.

  1. Go to My profile, and then select Manage accounts and teams.
  2. Select Manage.
  3. Select a team, and then select Delete.
