Understanding organizations and teams

Let's dive deep into the structure and purpose of organizations and teams within Retable to streamline your collaboration.

What is an organization? 

The purpose of an organization in Retable is to provide a centralized billing and management system. The paying person can add multiple users to the organization based on the number of seats purchased. For example, if you buy a team plan for 5 seats, you can invite 5 people to your organization. They can then use all the team plan features of Retable for free without making any additional payments.

Retable's organization feature is designed to enhance team management through structured and efficient planning. With this feature, you can create an organization for your company, establish multiple teams, and assign members to relevant teams, enabling team-based authorizations and a more organized approach to project and data management.

Members added to your organization will count against your seat allocation, allowing them to access all of Retable's premium features at no additional cost. However, adding a user to your organization does not automatically grant them access to all workspaces and projects. For collaboration on specific workspaces or projects, users must be individually invited to those particular areas.

What is a team? 

A team in Retable is a subgroup within your organization where you can add members and manage them separately. Teams allow you to create workspaces where individual projects can be managed collectively. You can create unlimited teams, and a user can be in more than one team.

Teams are useful for organizing your workspace and sharing resources efficiently using the @teamname tag, simplifying the process when members join or leave.
