Teams - an overview

Using Teams, project activities can be planned, tracked, collaborated, reported and executed in a more organized and structured manner.

This feature facilitates effective communication among the team members who need to be aware of the changes and latest updates occurring in their projects and act accordingly. For example, using the team's view of backlogs, any project impediment can be communicated to the team and resolved quickly.

The Team list view consists of a tree structure of all the teams in a project, a summary and a filter table of the selected team. The filter table allows you to assign artifacts to a specific team. You can configure your team filter table and filter work items depending on the information you want. The filter table lists only the artifacts for the selected team. If you have selected a parent team, the filter table does not include the artifacts of the subteams (child teams).
Important: To access the Team feature, you must have the Tracker 'view' permission.

Team roles and permissions

Other than the Tracker 'view' permission, there are no role permissions that you need to set specifically for Team on the Permissions page of Project Admin. Depending upon your project role, you can view the appropriate icons on the Team list view and perform Team related tasks.
