We know it can take a village to put on a great event, so Teams are designed to simplify inviting collaborators and managing their access to your apps, events, and other Socio products. When you buy Socio product credits, they're associated with teams as well. Need to upgrade that village to a town? Your team can have as many members as you want. 👍
This article explains how to invite and edit team members and manage Team Settings. If you're an Admin on your team, you're in the right place!
How do teams work?
When you purchase Socio products, we create a team for you in the Socio Platform and add credits for each product you purchase. When you activate certain features or publish Socio products, you select the team associated with the credits you purchased.
Teams also let you grant other people access to events, registrations, or other Socio products associated with your team. There are two types of team members:
Editors can access and edit every product associated with your team.
Administrators have the same access as editors, and they can also manage the team, including inviting new members and editing team details.
Access team settings
As an Admin, you can invite new team members and edit existing members' access, edit your team name, and manage product and feature credits.
To access team settings, click your profile image in the top right corner of the Socio Platform, then click Team Settings in the drop-down menu. In the modal that appears, click the Settings (⚙️) icon next to the team you want to manage and click Manage Members.
⭐️ Keep in mind, If you don't see the Team Settings option, it means you're not an Admin on a team.
Add team members
In the Manage Members modal, click the Add People button to invite a new member to your team. In the modal that appears, enter the Email of the team member you're inviting and add an optional Personal Message to include with the invite.
Finally, select which User Role the team member should have and click Save Changes. An invite email is automatically sent to the address you entered.
⚠️ Important! If the person clicks the link to accept the invitation while already logged into the Socio Platform with a different email, the link might not work. They should log out of the platform before using the invitation link.
If the person isn't logged into the Socio Platform, they'll be prompted to create a new account or sign into an existing account. Once they're logged in, they're part of the team and can begin working!
Edit team members
To edit an existing team member's role or delete them from your team, or to access the Manage Members modal as described above, simply click the Settings (⚙️) icon next to a member to make a change.
Manage team settings
⚠️ Caution! We don't recommend creating a new team or transferring credits unless a member of our staff has instructed you to do so.
To rename a team or transfer credits between different teams, click your profile icon in the top right corner of the platform and select Team Settings from the drop-down. In the modal that appears, click the Settings (⚙️) icon next to the team you want to manage and click Edit Team Details.
