Creating a Flock Team: 101

What are teams on Flock?

Teams allow you to have more focused conversations within a group or organization. You can create teams for your company, department or that secret side project you’ve been working on. Flock lets you stay connected with multiple teams from a single account.

Upgrade a team

Flock lets you create three types of teams:

  1. Organizational Teams are teams in which any user with an email address on your company domain name, are automatically added to the team as soon as they sign up on Flock. Organizational teams cannot be created for free email domains like Gmail or Yahoo.
  2. Invite-only Teams are teams in which Admins have to approve each member before they can join. Admins can also choose to auto-approve certain domains and allow users belonging to these domains to join without approval. However, unlike Organization Teams, users need to explicitly join such a Team, they will never be added automatically.
  3. Public Teams are teams that can be discovered and joined by anyone on the internet without approval.

Only Admins can create or upgrade their team to an Organizational one.

Creating channels within teams

Create channels within teams to keep conversations focused to relevant team members. Check out our guide to channels to learn more.

Tip: Create teams for organizations like alphacompany, departments within your organization like alphamarketing, and communities like petlovers. Create channels within these larger teams to discuss more specific topics. For instance, create a social media marketers group within an alphamarketing team.
