Teams

Each Netlify site belongs to a team, even if it’s a team of one. Teams can have multiple Netlify users as members, and your Netlify user can be a member of multiple teams.

Access team settings and information

When working with sites or team settings, the current team name is displayed at the top of the page next to the Netlify logo. If you are a member of more than one team, you can select the team name to open a dropdown to select a different team.

Once you’ve selected a team, you can access the team’s sites, domains, members, audit log, billing, and other team settings.

Manage team members

You can view a team’s member list under the team’s 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. Then select Continue.

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

Depending on your team plan, you may need to purchase additional seats to add new members. If this is the case, we will inform you of the cost before you continue.

In the next step, select permissions for these new members. The available roles have the following permissions:

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

Note: Role options vary by plan.

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 list. 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. As an 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 a member has access to all sites or only 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 list which can be reached via a link at the bottom of the Site members section or by selecting the team from the team dropdown at the top of the page and then selecting the Members tab. On the Team members list, Owners can select … > Edit member to change a member’s permissions

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

Create a new team

To create a new team, select the team dropdown at the top of the Netlify app, then select Create new team.

null

Choose a name for the new 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.

Transfer sites between teams

You can transfer any site for which you have Owner access to any team where you are an Owner or Collaborator. To do this, go to the site’s settings page, under Settings > General > Site information, and select Transfer site. You may also choose to create a new team from this dropdown.

Warning! Transferring a site between teams may affect site members, features, or pricing. This varies depending on the current site settings and the plans of the teams you’re transferring between, so be sure to read the in-app warnings carefully.

Here are some general rules to keep in mind:

  • Site members who are not members of the destination team will lose access to the site. You may want to invite them to the team before transferring.
  • Some features and settings are restricted to specific plans. If the destination team is on a lower plan than the originating team, you will lose any settings you may have entered for the features you lose. Check the current plan for each team and compare their features and pricing.
  • Legacy Global sites use a dedicated CDN, and require special handling for transfer. If you’re considering canceling a Global site 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.

To transfer sites between teams with no shared Owners or Collaborators, please contact support.

Team audit log

This feature may not be available on all plans.

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 team dropdown in the upper left corner, then select the Audit log tab.

Searching audit logs

This feature may not be available on all plans.

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
