Adding a Team

To create a new team in iKnow, you will need to go to Settings, either by clicking the icon or selecting it from the drop down menu, then click Teams.

In the Teams Settings, click the Create New Team button at the top of the page, enter the name of your new team and click the Save button. You will see your new team added to the alphabetical list.

If you are a multi campus church, you will need to activate the team in, at least, one campus, which will allow you to add members to, and create rotas for, the team. To activate the team, select the campus from the drop down menu and click Manage Team. If you are a single campus church, simply click Manage Team. Next, tick the checkbox to enable the team, you will then be able to add members to your team.

To add members to the team, start typing the name of the new team member into the Search box and click on their name in the list that appears below it. You can add as many people as you need, to the team.

Once the team members are added, you can give each member permissions dependent upon what you would like them to be able to do within the team. The person assigned as Team Leader will, usually, be given all permissions for the team, but, if you want other team members to be able to Manage Rotas, or to Send Messages, you can give them permissions to do so.

If you give a member of the team permission to Manage Membership they will be able to add and remove people from the team from within the team. They will be able to go to the Teams module, click on the Team and click the Manage Membership link in the top bar. They will see a search bar at the top of the list of team members, where they can search for people they wish to add to the team. If they click on any of the existing team members, they will see a red Remove from Team button at the top of their profile which they can click to remove them from the team.

Once you have added your team members and given permissions, click the ‘x’ in the top right corner to close the window. If you need to set up the team for another campus, simply select that campus from the drop down menu and repeat the same process.

You are also able to add people to teams from the People module. Click the People icon on the Dashboard, or select it from the drop down list. Search for the person you want to add to a team, click their name in the list and click the Edit button. Click the Teams tab, you can then add them to the team and give them permissions, then click the ‘x’ to dismiss the page and go back to People.

If you click Campus Teams, on the left of the People module, you will see your new team, click the team name and you will see the members you have added.
