Teams App allows you to configure the collaboration in your own way. You can enhance the communication within your team with the assistance of Activities available in Apptivo. With the advanced security feature, you can easily decide the access to the activities by your team and set privileges for it.

Johnson is the team manager of the Support Team. He doesn’t want the News Feed activity to be accessed by all the employees in the team as some information involves confidentiality. He uses the ‘Privilege Access’ feature in Apptivo to control who accesses the News Feed.

Steps to Configure Collaboration

  • Go to the Teams App from the app header bar.
  • Click on “Settings” -> “General” -> “Collaboration”.
