How to create a team?

One of the strongest tools in monday.com is communication. Communicating with your team members is super easy: you can use the "@" followed by the name of the team member you wish to communicate with to send this person an instant notification. But what if you need to communicate with more than one person? 🤔

We came up with the ability to @mention teams just for that! By creating a team you can communicate with a large audience in just one click.

Why should you create a team?

There are a few advantages of creating a team. 

1. Subscribe your team to your boards in one click

You can subscribe your team to your board in one click by doing the following: 

  1. Click on the three dots menu on the right of your board
  2. Select "board subscribers" 
  3. Type your team's name and you are done!

2. Communicate between teams easily

At monday.com each department has its own team (i.e.: customer success, HR, R&D) which really helps in keeping everyone in the loop. The communication between teams is easy and smooth. By default you can also @mention everyone in your account, as well as everyone on a specific board. 

3. Invite a team member to a team

When inviting a new team member to your monday.com account, you have the option to directly have that user added to a team.

This way, this team member will automatically be subscribed to all the boards you have subscribed your team too. To learn more about how to invite new users to your account, check out this article
