Teams! One of the most requested features. We didn’t get a clear definition of what our customers wanted. So, we first made the sub-user system that allowed you to add a sub-user who can manage your servers. But that system was not good, obviously. There were many issues.
- If someone is your sub-user, one cannot manage their own servers in the same account. They had to create a new account with a different email address.
- In this system, One person can only work for one client/partner. It is not possible to manage accounts in ServerAvatar that way.
So, we quickly found the solution. We started working on a Teams feature. It is awesome! Now, people can have multiple teams and they don’t even have to worry about the billing part!
This way, both problems are solved. So, Let’s see how Teams work in ServerAvatar.
There are few rules when it comes to managing your account with teams. Here are the rules.
- Only Admin can Add/Remove new servers in a team.
- The bill per server is paid by the Admin of a team.
- Admin can add/remove other members from a team with a valid E-mail address of another ServerAvatar user.
So, Rules are simple and fair! Now let’s see how to manage teams in ServerAvatar.
Change Current Team
The current team is a team on which you are working right now. It means that when you select a specific team, you will see everything under that team on the dashboard.
Also, It is very easy to change a team. To change a current team, click on a first drop-down menu given on the top-right corner of the page.
It will change the view based on a team you select. Then, whatever you do on ServerAvatar will be done under that team! No Mistakes!
If you are a new user. Or if you haven’t used teams, you will see only one team named Personal. Now, Let’s see How to create a new team.
Create a new team
First, click on the Account -> Manage button given at the top-right corner. See the following screenshot for reference.
On this page, you will see a teams section in the left sidebar with two options, just like this one. Click on the Teams option to get a list of all the teams you are part of.
And here is how the list of teams will look like. You can also see all the actions you can perform on a specific team. Click on a Create Team button to create a new team.
