You can group organization members into teams that reflect your company or group's structure with cascading access permissions and mentions.

About teams

Teams are groups of organization members that reflect your company or group's structure with cascading access permissions and mentions.

Creating a team

You can create independent or nested teams to manage repository permissions and mentions for groups of people.

Adding organization members to a team

People with owner or team maintainer permissions can add organization members to teams. People with owner permissions can also invite non-members to join a team and the organization.

Renaming a team

Team maintainers and organization owners can edit the name and description of a team.

Changing team visibility

Team maintainers and organization owners can determine whether a team is visible or secret.

Moving a team in your organization’s hierarchy

Team maintainers and organization owners can nest a team under a parent team, or change or remove a nested team's parent.

Requesting to add a child team

If you have maintainer permissions in a team, you can request to nest an existing team under your team in your organization’s hierarchy.

Removing organization members from a team

People with owner or team maintainer permissions can remove team members from a team. This may be necessary if a person no longer needs access to a repository the team grants, or if a person is no longer focused on a team's projects.

Deleting a team

Organization owners can delete teams at any time from the team's settings page.
