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.

  2. Select Manage.
  3. Select a team, and then select Delete.
