Gearset's team features are designed to make collaboration between developers, admins, and release managers ingeniously simple. Users within a team can see each other's activity, such as deployments and automation jobs, and work together to build draft deployment packages.

Invite your team early on for maximum benefits

If you work as part of a team on your deployments, it's best to get everyone in the same team early on in your evaluation. That will ensure everyone has access to the full deployment history and give you a chance to try out all the collaboration features.

Note: The person who first created the team will automatically be the first team owner.

Inviting users to your team

Note that only team owners can invite users.

To begin adding other team members, visit the My account page (Team management section), accessed by clicking on the Gearset icon in the top right.

You can invite people to join your team regardless of whether they already have a Gearset account or not.

To invite users to join the team, you send them a link via email.

Pending invites are listed above the team table. If your team uses an instant chat tool, sending the link directly (via clicking the Copy invite link button) can be easier than waiting for the email to arrive.

If the Assign licenses with invites checkbox is ticked, then any teammates who join will be automatically assigned a Gearset license as soon as they join.

Note: The invitation will expire in 5 days from creation.

Accepting team invites

When you click on an invite link, you will be taken to the Gearset account creation page:

If you do not have a Gearset account, click Create your Gearset account using your chosen login details.

If you already have an account, click I already have a Gearset account at the bottom, and enter your existing Gearset login details. Note that you can only be a member of one Gearset team at a time, so when you join a new team, you leave your old team.

You will join the new team as a team member (as opposed to a team owner).

Managing new team members

After accepting an invitation, the team member will appear in the team list on the My account page (Team management section).

If you are a team owner, (even if you don't have a license assigned to yourself), you can:

  • If you have available licenses, assign them a license by changing the license type from None to Starter, Teams, or Enterprise, as shown in the picture above. 

  • Make them a team owner. (You can have multiple team owners per team.)
