How do I set up my team?

To create a new team, click the Teams icon on the left-hand nav bar, then click Join or Create Teams at the bottom of the teams list. From this screen, you can view all existing public teams in your network, or create a new team by clicking the New Team button.

Teams can be created as either Public or Private teams. Public teams are accessible to all users in your network. You can add people to a Public team, or users can browse for Public teams to join from the Join or Create Teams screen. Private teams contain only the users in your network you have added or invited to the team.

Who can see my workspaces or teams?

If your team is Public any user in your organization can join that team and see it on the Join or Create Teams screen. If your team is Private, only users who belong to that team can see it.

If your workspace is a team-wide workspace, all members of your team can see that workspace. If your workspace is a private workspace, only users who have been added or invited to that workspace can see it.

My company is changing email domains, what do I need to do in TIMU?

If your company controls a corporate network in TIMU and is planning on changing its email domain, please contact TIMU support (support@timu.com) to assist you with this.

How do I invite clients to my teams?

You can invite clients to a team by using the Invite button within TIMU. TIMU will send them an email with a link allowing them to reach your team and join it. Alternatively, simply send your clients a share link to your team, or a link to a workspace event. They will be prompted to join the team automatically.

How do I reactivate a deactivated user?

Network owners can reactivate archived users. To reactivate a user, click the Settings app on the left nav bar, locate the user in the list of users and open their profile, then choose Unarchive from the options.

What happens to someone’s tasks/files/data if they leave the company?

None of the content a user creates in your TIMU network is deleted when that user is archived. Files they attached or uploaded to libraries remain in place, messages that they sent are preserved, and tasks, cards, events, workspaces, and teams created by the archived user remain.

Note that archiving a user could make it difficult to manage certain teams or workspaces if the archived user was the only owner. If this happens, a network owner can resolve the issue by making another member of the team or workspace an owner of that team or workspace.
