To create a team, you need to add a new team to a Service Type, and then add positions and team members.

Check out this video for an overview of how to create teams, and then see the article below for more details.


Set up a New Team

Teams belong to Service Types. From the Plans page, click the gear menu for a Service Type and select Teams.

From the Teams tab for a Service Type, click Add Team, and then enter your new team information.

You can create a completely new team or copy information over from another team. If you copy a team, you can choose the Service Type and Team to copy from.

If you want to copy over team members from the existing team, check Include Team Members. If this option is not checked, team settings and positions will be copied to the new team, but any people or tags won't be assigned to the new team.

If you have Other or Rehearsal Times in your upcoming plans, check any times that you want to assign to the team and click Submit.

Split Team: If you want your team members to serve serve at different service times, go to the Team Settings tab and make it a Split Team by checking the box.

Add Positions and Team Members

After creating a team, create positions for the team and assign people to the positions.
