Teams are groups of organization members that share repository access permissions and that you can mention together.
Organization owners and team maintainers can give teams admin, read, or write access to organization repositories. Organization members can send a notification to an entire team by mentioning the team's name.
Teams can be visible or secret:
- Visible teams can be viewed and @mentioned by every organization member.
- Secret teams are only visible to the people on the team and people with owner permissions. They're great for hiding teams with sensitive names or members, such as those used for working with external partners or clients.
