Teams are used to communicate with a group of people, from connecting with co-workers in your department to collaborating on a project with others in your company. The team administrator is the user who initially created the team. This user can give admin permissions to other team members.

Teams are either public or private. If a team is private, you must be invited to the team in order to join, while a public team means you can join without an invite.
For this article, we’ll discuss how you can manage all teams created for your company. However, if you haven’t yet created a team for your company, visit Creating a new team in the app desktop and web to learn more.

Viewing teams

There are several locations in the app where you can manage your teams, but if you would like to visit one place in the app where you can create teams, find and join existing teams, and manage your existing teams, you can do this via the Contacts menu in the left-hand navigation bar. 
Note: You cannot view private teams unless you have already been invited to that team.
