Teams

You can collaborate on multiple sites with the same group of people by creating a Team.

Create a team

To create a new team, click the user/team dropdown in the upper left corner of the app. (This will show either your name, or the name of another team you belong to.) Select Create a new team.

null

Choose a name for your team, then pick a plan. (For more details on plan features, visit the pricing page.)

Review your team information, enter your payment information, and select Create team.

Manage team members

To view a team’s members, select the team from the user/team dropdown in the upper left corner, then select the Members tab.

Add new team members

If you’re a team Owner, you can invite new members to the team by selecting the Add members button in the upper right.

The first step to add someone to your team is to enter their email address. You can enter several email addresses separated by commas (without spaces) to invite multiple people at once.

Interface to add team members asks for the emails of the new members.

Then click Continue to move on to the next step of selecting a role for these new members. The available roles have the following permissions:

Owner Collaborator* Billing Admin†
Create sites ✔️ ✔️
View and edit site settings ✔️ ✔️
Change plans for site add-ons ✔️ ✔️
Modify billing information ✔️ ✔️
Change team plan ✔️ ✔️
Delete or transfer sites ✔️
Add or remove members ✔️
Modify member roles ✔️
Delete the team ✔️

* Collaborators require a Teams Pro plan or higher.
† Billing Admins require a Teams Business plan or higher.

Collaborators can be given access to all sites within the team, or only specific sites. After selecting the role (and site access if applicable) for the new members, the invites will be ready to send.

Change a team member’s permissions

If you’re a team Owner, you can change a team member’s permissions via the Team members page. To change someone’s role (and site access if applicable), select … > Edit member. To remove a team member, select … > Remove from team.

Owners can use the "..." dropdown to remove or edit a member.

Note that every team must have at least one Owner. You cannot remove or demote yourself unless there is an additional Owner on the team.

Manage site members

Owners can allow Collaborators to work on all sites within the team, or only on specific sites. The member list will indicate whether someone has access to all sites or just specific sites. Owners always have access to all sites.

To find out which members can access a particular site, go to Sites, select the site, and visit Settings > General > Site members.

Owners can change what sites a Collaborator is able to access. This is done from the Team members page which can be reached via a link at the bottom of the Site members section or by selecting the team from the user/team dropdown in the upper left corner and then selecting the Members tab. On the Team members page, Owners can select … > Edit member to change someone’s permissions

Owners can select the specific sites that a team member can access

Create a new team site

You can create a new site from the Sites list. To create a site with Continuous Deployment and enable the full power of Netlify, select the New site from Git button in the upper right corner.

null

Follow the steps to connect to your Git provider (GitHub, GitLab, or Bitbucket) and select a site repository. Then select the appropriate team in the Owner dropdown.

Use the "Owner" dropdown to select a team to create the site in

To create a site via Drag and Drop, drag a site folder or zip file anywhere onto the team’s site list. The site will begin to upload and deploy immediately.

Transfer a site to a team

You can transfer any site to a team from the site’s settings page, under Settings > General > Site information. Select the team from the Owner dropdown. You may also choose to create a new team from this dropdown.

Warning! Transferring a site to a new team may affect site administrators, features, or pricing. This varies depending on the current site settings and the plan level of the team you’re transferring to, so be sure to read the in-app warnings carefully.

Here are some general rules to keep in mind:

  • Site administrators on personal or legacy sites will be added automatically to the team as team collaborators.
  • Teams charge per user, not per site. If you’re creating a new team to transfer a legacy or personal site, be sure to account for any existing site administrators when calculating your costs. Remember that once you create the team, you can transfer an unlimited number of sites to it with no added cost.
  • If you’re transferring between teams, check the plan level for each team and compare their features and pricing. If the transfer results in a downgrade, you will lose settings for the features you lose.
  • Legacy Global sites use a dedicated CDN, and require special handling for transfer. If you’re considering canceling a Global plan or transferring a Global site to a team, contact support so we can guide you through the process and avoid any interruptions in service.

Audit log

Netlify keeps a log of actions made by members of your team so you can keep track of what changes were made, when, and by whom.

To view a team’s audit log, select the team from the user/team dropdown in the upper left corner, then select the Audit log tab.

Viewing more than the last 7 days of Team audit logs requires a Teams Business plan or higher.

Searching audit logs

Searching audit logs requires a Teams Business plan or higher.

To search a team’s audit logs, provide a scoped search term and press enter or click the magnifying glass icon in the search field.

Searches require a scope: prefix. The following search scopes are available:

  • site:example — search all logs pertaining to a particular site name as listed on the site settings page
  • domain:example.com — search all logs pertaining to a particular domain
  • author:example — search all logs for a particular person performing the log action
