How do I create, edit, and delete teams

How to create a new team: 

Teams can be created in one of two ways:

  1. Go to the Teams tab at the main navigation pane. At the top right corner click on Add Team
  2. Go to Account Settings -> Teams & Contributors -> click the "Add a Team" button.
You need to be viewing "All Teams" in order to add a team. If you don't see the option to "Add Team", change your view to "All Teams" as seen below.

In the “Add Team” screen, complete the following steps:

  1. Assign a name for the team (must be unique).
  2. Select a parent group if needed. Teams can be nested under groups, the team activity will roll up into a group dashboard to see combined metrics for all teams in a group.
  3. Customize the team’s initials.
  4. Select the team’s preferred color.
  5. Select team members. Teams are not mutually exclusive and you can assign a developer to multiple teams.
  6. If this team is new in the organization and doesn’t have work history, uncheck “Get team’s history”.
  7. Click Save & Close
It takes a few minutes for all the team’s data to be populated.
