A team is a group of users that you want to have similar access to the project. For instance, you may create a Team for 'Client', or for 'Vendors'.

Full Access Teams

When you first start a project, by default a team called My Team. Typically, you would name this team your company or organization name.

Any users added to this team will always have full, admin level access to the project. They will also be able to view all private feedback threads on any assets, and view all private tasks. Typically, you would add your close team members to this team.

Restricted Teams

Any additional teams you add to your project will automatically be Restricted Teams, which means they will only have access to phases, folders and assets that you invite them to. 

Additionally, restricted teams will only be able to see private feedback threads for their own team, and will only be able to see private tasks that they are given access to.
