Teams Overview

Workstatus allows you to create teams within your organization. The Teams feature makes assigning multiple users to a project easier. It also allows you to assign a Team Lead so that you can delegate common day-to-day tasks like creating schedules, setting up user roles and projects, as well as approving timesheets and time-offs.

Providing manager access to a specific team member

You can assign one or more users within an existing team as a Team Lead to have manager access. Users assigned as Team leads will be able to approve timesheets, time-offs, and create schedules for the team.

Project roles supersede Team Lead access. Team leads can only see the screenshots and activity of other team members if they are set up as project managers within assigned projects.

To assign a Team lead to an existing team, click on Teams on the sidebar, then next to the team name, click on Actions -> Edit Team.



STEP 2

Navigate to the Team Leads tab, then choose the team members you wish to assign as Team Leads.



You can also toggle the Permissions settings to enable/disable the assigned Team Leads from being able to approve timesheets, time-off requests, and schedule shifts. You may also adjust notification settings for each permission.

Once you’re done, hit Save.
