A circle can have one or more teams of users. A user can be part of one or more teams.

Teams and Circles

In general you should consider the users of a circle as one team. They have one Manifest and one Product Backlog. It is good practice to create a basic team in the circle with all users in the circle.

But you can also create more teams with certain responsibilities. E.g. a team with all developers in the circle. This makes it easier to mention in comments or assign tasks to a group of people.

Teams with user rights groups

Teams can be used to assign circle access rights to users. This is done by attaching one or more user rights groups . But first when creating the team, the User Right Type should set to reflect the right user licenses. Then if there are any user rights groups, created in the same license category, they will be loaded.  All users that will eventually be part of this team will get these circle access rights. 

How to add Teams?

In the “More” Main Menu select “Circle overview”. In the “Teams” tab, you can add teams.

Note that not all users in the circle are allowed to add teams. But all the users can see the list of current users and teams in the Circle overview.

How to add users to a Team?

Users can be added to a team via the “Edit User Rights” window tab. From the “More” menu access the “Manage Users” menu which loads a list of all users. There should be buttons to the right of each user list item, that will help you to do just that.
