Introduction

 

With the help of teams, the users of a customer can easily manage the available resources apart from each other. For example, a big company with many sites are using different products at different prices. It results in many resources, for example, pictures, videos, datasources, contents and screens, and it can be a bit overwhelming to manage. For better management purposes, you can now create teams and can assign resources to them. 

You can make teams in the Settings/Teams menu. 

When you first make teams, you need to select two global settings to your liking: 

  • Resources not assigned to team are available to everyone -> if turned off, only the owner can access the resources without teams. 
  • Users not in a team can access everything -> if turned off, these users cannot access anything. 

 

You can modify these settings later too. 

Setting up teams

 

After clicking on the “Add new” buttonyou can add and manage several things: 

  • Name  
  • Comment  
  • Users  
  • Screens  
  • Loops  
  • Contents  
  • Schedules  
  • Files  
  • Messages  
  • Datasources  
  • Remove team  

From a user’s point of view, he can only see the resources assigned to his team, except if the Owner/Administrator turned on the “resources not assigned to team are available to everyone” option.
Then, he will see the team’s resources and the unassigned resources too. He will not see other teams‘ resources. 

You can assign resources to teams in many placesnot just in the Settings/Teams menu. Here is a list of where to find them. 

User: 

  • Settings/Users/Edit user 
  • Settings/Users -> Add new 

Loop/content/schedule: 

  • Home/ 
  • When adding new loop/content/schedule 

Datasource: 

  • Settings/Datasources/Edit datasource 
  • Settings/ New database 

Files: 

  • When uploading a new file in the file manager 
  •  File manager/…/Edit teams 

  

Useful facts

 

Teams can’t be the member of another team, but a user can belong to multiple teams. 

Users with Owner or Administrator role can see and manage every team inside the customer. 

A content can contain resources that one team can see while the other don’t. The visibility doesn’t matter in the displayer, only the Editor. 

A content that belongs to a team can be inside a folder that not shared with the team.
