Learn How To Better Organize Your Content Production With New Product Feature - Teams

If you were getting frustrated with managing multiple teams' projects in one space where everyone has permission to see budgets, scopes, and timelines, we heard your concerns. Our product engineers developed a new degree of separation between various teams using one Storyhunter account.

“I was working on improving the user experience for companies that have many team members managing projects on our platform,” said Storyhunter’s Head of Product Max Schwartz. “My instinct was to give clients an opportunity to mimic their own organizational structure with the feature called Teams. This would allow individuals to only see postings and projects that were relevant to their Team.”

Thanks to your feedback, our new Teams feature is now available for our subscription accounts. What can you expect?

“For managers, it will introduce clearer separation within an account. For regular users, it will remove irrelevant projects and postings from their view,” our Director of Sales Hubie Pilkington said.

Keep reading to learn more about our new and exciting Teams feature.

What is Teams?

The new feature lets admins assign users, projects, and postings to different teams to improve organization and control visibility across the account. When a project or posting is assigned to a team, only users appointed to that team can view and collaborate on it.

Only account Admins can create teams and assign users. They can view and access all teams.

Teams feature is only available for Business and Enterprise subscription plans you can see here.

How do you create a new Team?

After logging in, click your profile image in the top right of the screen and click Company Profile from the drop down.

Click on the Members tab. Here you can review all account users and their designated teams.

To create a new team, click Add Team. Enter the team name, and description, then click the checkmark to confirm.

How do you assign a user to a Team?

On the members' page, scroll down to locate the user. On the right side of the page, click the Teams icon. From the drop-down, select the Team that you’d like to assign that user to. A user can be assigned to more than one team.

How do you assign a Team to a posting or project?

Postings and Projects can only be assigned to one team. Users will be prompted to select a team when creating a posting. They will only have the option to add teams that they’ve been assigned to.

Admins can assign a team after the posting or project has been created. To do this, locate the posting or project and click the Teams icon on the right side of the page and designate a team from the drop-down.

What’s Next?

Max says Teams is a gateway to many more features. “Not only does it allow companies to fully adopt the platform with the new permissions but also allows spending, reporting, and eventually budgeting on a team level. After we see how organizations use teams, we will do a follow-up release with even more refined permissions. Do we need team-level admins? How about workflow approval processes? Or what about defined roles like ‘finance’ vs ‘production?’ These are all things we are thinking about for upcoming releases.”
