Teams: Editing and removing a User for Local Administrators

Editing teams

To edit teams:

1. Click Admin in the navigation bar at the top of the screen and select Teams from the drop-down menu



2. Use the search box to search for a team by typing Display Name, Organisation, Organisation Unit or Status and search results will be displayed.



The system will return results for any team which contains the text entered in the search box.

Handy Hint

If you select the magnifying glass in the search box instead of typing in search criteria, you will be shown all the teams that are available to you as a Local Administrator.

3. Click the team’s Display Name to open the Edit Team page

The procedure for editing a team is very similar to creating a new team. All the information of a team can be changed from the Edit Team page.

4. Edit Name, Privacy and Description as required
