Working with Managed Teams

On Managed Teams tab on the Teams page, in the Users & Teams module in the Enterprise Admin Console, you can add new teams, view existing teams, suspend teams, and if desired, unmanage a managed team. You can also view the number of members for each team, the type of team as a public or private team, and the current status of the team as active or suspended.

When you add an unmanaged team as managed team, any of your domain members in the unmanaged team that are unmanaged users are automatically added and billed as managed users. Any external users that are members of the unmanaged team are also billed as managed members when the team is added to your company as a managed team.

Note: Only managed teams are listed on the Managed Teams page. For more information on adding unmanaged teams as managed teams, see Working with Unmanaged Teams.

There are no restrictions on the number of teams a managed user can create or own on an enterprise paid plan. The following illustration shows an example of the Managed Teams tab on the Teams page, in the Users & Teams module:
