Creating a Team

The system administrator and users with the appropriate role can access these features.

A team can consist of users, teams, and departments. When creating a team, you must select one person as the team owner.

When determining a user’s ability to create and maintain teams, consider the following rules.

A user can never

  • Add himself or herself to an existing team.
  • Remove himself or herself from a team.
  • Remove the system administrator from a team.
  • Delete a team.

Tell me more about team security...Closed

When a user is added to a team, his/her security on that team defaults to the profile set on the Security tab. The security profile can be changed on each team of which the user is a member. Changing a user’s security profile on one team does not affect the user’s default profile, or the profile in any other team in which the user is a member.

If a user has more than one security profile (for example, the user is added to a team as a nested team or department and is also a direct member of the parent team), the security profiles share the same seccode (owner). When determining security access for a field, multiple profiles may be returned. In the Web Client, access is determined by combining the maximum access of all profiles assigned to that user and owner.
