In Optimizely Program Management, a team is a group of collaborators with access to a collection of Experimentation projects. Members of a team can collaborate, manage workflows, submit and score experiment ideas, and view results for those projects.

Depending on your company's organizational structure, you may choose to set up business units as separate teams or add the entire company as a single team.

Members of a team can:

  • Manage workflows.

  • Submit and score experiment ideas.

  • Comment and collaborate on experiments.

  • View the results for the project.

Often, teams choose to set up different permission levels for individual collaborators in Program Management from the collaborator permissions they have in Optimizely Experimentation. See Create a team.
