Teams

Any employee can create a team to work on a project with co-workers from other departments. This can be useful if several people are working on the same project or with the same client.

If your company has an email domain linked to it, teams automatically get their own email address (mailing list). You can use this address to send an email to all team members at once, or to quickly add all of them to a group chat.

  1. Create a team
  2. Add or remove team members

Create a team

  1. Go to the Yandex.Connect home page and click People.

  2. On the upper panel, select Teams → All teams.

  3. Under the team list, click Add.

  4. Fill in the required fields:

    • Team name.

    • Administrators — administrators can change team preferences and team members. Start entering the employee's name or username and select the appropriate option from the list. You can select multiple employees at once.

    • Team mail — email address used by your team (for example, “my-team@example.org”). The team email address also acts as a mailing list, since any emails sent there are received by all employees who are part of the team.

      The address must have at least 3 characters. It can consist of numbers, Latin letters, underscores, and hyphens (but it can't begin or end with a hyphen).

    Restriction. Mailing lists are only available for companies with an email domain.
  5. Click Create.

Add or remove team members

Restriction. Only the team's administrator or the company administrator can modify teams.

Team participants can be individuals, or other teams or departments.

Add team members
