Teams Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Team?

The main objective of this function is team collaboration between different users either to collaborate on a project or for a specific work area. When you belong to a team, the information will be visible only to its members.

How do I create a team and add participants?

To create a Team, you must first go to Your profile in the upper right corner of the site. Once in the profile view, click on settings and then on the Teams tab. There select Create new team. Finally, a name is assigned to the team, the users who are members of the team are added et voilá!

To add them you can do it with the Alphacast username or with the e-mail. If you put the wrong user, you can easily remove it by pressing Remove.


Even if you have already created the group, you can also change its members at any time. When you access the Teams tab, the groups listed appear, and there you can delete them. If you do it that way, don't forget to hit Update team to save your changes.


How do I change the permissions that team members have?

There are no different levels of permissions within a team, that is, all members have the same hierarchy. The user who created the team is the one who can add and remove people from a team. Permissions are assigned on the repositories, not on the teams, that is, a particular team can be assigned read, write, admin or ownership permission of a repo. Read more
