Teams in the community

Find out how to join your community teams, manage your membership or create your own team.

 

Employers or organisations very often organise challenges for the community. If it is a team challenge, the teams are usually created by the employer.

You can follow your team's performance in the team challenge on the campaign banner.

Joining a team

You are invited to a HeiaHeia community: 

  • When signing up to the community with an email invitation,  you will automatically join also your team.
  • When signing up to the community with a code, you will be asked to pick up your team. If needed, please ask your employer/organisation, in which team you should join.

In some cases teams are not created by the organisation, so the community members can set up their own teams.

You can also join teams later (s. Managing teams)

 

Team types

There are 3 different team types: 

- Public team: All community members can join. 

- Closed team: Team is visible when browsing teams. Membership only by request. The request will be pending as long as the founder of the team accepts your request.  

- Private team: Team is not visible when browsing teams. Membership only by invitation.
