Fleep teams act as a group of people you can add to or remove from any conversation.
When someone is added to the Fleep team they will automatically be added to all team conversations. And vice versa — when you remove someone from the team they will be removed from all team conversations.
Unlike most team messengers, Fleep is an open network. This means that Fleep teams can have participants from within and outside the organization, enabling ultimate team and project communication. It also means you can belong to several teams!
Step 1: Create a team
Teams are a Fleep for Business feature, so you need to have a Fleep for Business subscription to create teams.
If you're not a Fleep for Business user yet, switch to this guide instead: How to get started with Fleep.
If you already belong to a Fleep for Business organization, open the account menu and select Teams.
If you already belong to a team or two, you can use the + Create new team button at the bottom of the window.
The team will be created once you have given it a name in the first step:
Step 2: Add members
When creating the team you will be prompted to add members to the team. You can add anyone with their Fleep username or email address. If they're not Fleep uses yet, they will receive an invite to join your team in Fleep. If you'd prefer, you can also invite people by asking them to join via the unique link shown in this view.
If you skip this step, you can add members later from the Teams view.
Step 3: Create team conversations
In this step, you can create the team's first conversations. For effective communication, organize them around different topics you need to cover regularly. Some teams like to organize them around clients, product features, or projects, for example.
You can always add the team to more conversations later on as well. You can do this by adding the team to any existing conversation, or by creating a new conversation and adding the team.
Step 4: Send a welcome message
In the last step of team creation, you can send the first message to your team. Get the conversation going or post a simple welcome message. This message will be posted in the first team conversation that you've created.
Step 5: Start Fleeping with your team!
When you've set up your team and team conversations, you're good to go! You can start Fleeping, using Fleep Tasks to manage your team's to-dos, Pinboards to pin important information, set up a few integrations and much more!
