Team Building — Tasks
Anyone can propose a team. This help page covers:
- Propose a Team
- Recruit a Team
- Update a Team
- Finalize a Team
Propose a Team
To propose a team, use the My Content tab on your dashboard, and select the button.
A form will be displayed with the Team Editor. Fill out the information and when ready, make the post Public. You'll need to do two steps to make it public: Select the Public checkbox and set a date for Published.
Select the View as Team link at the bottom of the form to see how it will appear to others.
Recruit a Team
Once you have made your post public, you can begin recruiting your team. This consists may consist of two parts:
- Passive Recruiting
- Team Posts are visible to everyone. Your profile photo will be displayed (if provided -- upload on on your Profile). Next to your name is a button. Other users can send you a message through this link. You can reply to see if this person is a good fit.
- Active Recruiting
- Additionally, you should scan Skills Offered, another link in the page footer. Other users should be posting mini-résumés. If any user seems like a good fit, message them using the link next to their name.
Update Team Proposal
As you build your team, be sure to update your listing. Similarly, if you find you're not getting good applicants, consider wording changes to your proposal.
Add names of people who have joined your team. This may be advantageous for additional recruiting.
To update your proposal, use the My Content tab on your dashboard, and select the name of the team you're looking to change. This will display the same form you used to create your team. Edit your changes. There is no need to save as update are immediately visible. You can temporarily hide your proposal, if you like, but unselecting the Public checkbox.
Finalize a Team
Once your team is ready:
- Notify your administrator. They will need to create a Group for you. Send them the list of team members.
- Remove your Team Proposal. Update it to make it not public. Once the team has been converted to a Group by and administrator, you can delete the Team Proposal. Delete is available on the Team Building Form.
