Team Settings

The Team Settings menu offers Team Administrators and System Administrators the ability to adjust settings applied to a specific team.

The following settings are found in a Team Site from the Three-Dot menu at the top of the left sidebar under Team Settings.


General settings under the Team Settings > General configure how a team is displayed to users.

Team Name

Your Team Name is displayed on the sign-in page, and in the top of the left-hand sidebar for your team.

You can enter a name up to 15 characters in length. The length of team names is limited to ensure readability.

Team Description

Your Team Description is displayed when viewing the list of teams available to join and in the tooltip when hovering over the team name in the team sidebar.

You can enter a description up to 50 characters in length.

Allow anyone to join this team

After a user logs in to the site, they are shown a Team Selection page if they don’t belong to a team. Any team with Allow anyone to join this team option set to Yes will show up on this page under “Teams you can join”.

A user can access the Team Selection page by also clicking the “+” icon at the bottom of their team sidebar or from the Main Menu > Join Another Team.

Invite Code

The Invite Code is used as part of the URL in the team invitation link retrieved from the Main Menu > Get Team Invite Link. Click Re-Generate and then Save to generate a new team invitation link and invalidate the previous link.
