🧑🏽‍🤝‍🧑🏻 What is the Team Management Feature?

The Team Management feature is incredibly useful if you want someone else to upload the video and live stream on your social accounts but want to refrain from granting them admin rights on the social account.

If you add someone to your team, you will be the team owner, and the person you added will be your team member. Your team member can upload the videos and schedule streams on the social accounts you have given them access.

What is Team Management Feature?

🎯 Example: If you have a Facebook Page, you can add team members and give them permission to upload videos on your OneStream storage using their own OneStream account and live stream to your Facebook Page. They will only be able to stream on the Facebook Page but will never have admin rights on the Page (which is normally required to post something on the Page).

The social account you grant a team member access to is called a Managed Account. In the team member's dashboard, the account appears with a Managed Account tag under the social account name. When a team member schedules a stream on a managed account, the duration of the stream will be based on the subscription of the team owner.

🎯 Example: You are a Professional Plan user and can stream up to 8 hours per video. You add a team member who is a free user. When the team member schedules a stream on your assigned social account, the stream will run for a maximum of 8 hours, although the max allowed stream duration for a free user is 5 minutes.

Please note that the maximum number of team members allowed depends on your subscription plan:

  • Standard Plan: 2 team members
  • Professional Plan: 4 team members
💡 Important: The team member must have a OneStream account. If the team member is not a OneStream user, they will get an invitation via email when you add them to your team.

👨‍👦‍👦 Different Types of Team Members

When you add a team member to your team and grant him access to one of your social accounts, you can give different types of roles.
