Working with a Team
Preceden's Teams feature lets a group of people all create and work together on each other's timelines.
How it Works
On certain work plans, you'll have the ability to choose a team size:
If you pay for just 1 user, your plan will act like any other individual-user account.
If you pay for multiple users, you will become a Team Lead in Preceden and be able to invite other people to join. Those people will also be on the Pro plan and they'll be able to see and edit every other team member's timelines, including yours, and vice versa.
After you upgrade, you'll see a bright green Invite Your Team button on the top right of the page:
You can also get to that page in the future by going to Account > Manage Your Team.
This page lets you manage your team:
Including inviting new team members:
When you invite someone to join Preceden, they'll receive an invitation email with a special link that will let them sign up to join your team:
After they sign up, not only will they be able to create timelines of their own, but they'll be able to see and work on your timelines:
From your dashboard you'll also be able to see and work on their timelines:
How do teams and collaboration differ
We have a guide on that: Collaboration and Teams.
Which type of accounts can use teams?
Work accounts, meaning that when you signed up for an account you specified you are using it for work.
If you signed up for another type of account, for example, Personal Use, and want access to teams, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll adjust your account.
Also, some older work accounts don't have plans enabled yet. If you don't see an option to upgrade to expand your team size, contact us and we'll make the necessary adjustments: email@example.com.
How much does it cost to invite team members?
$50 per additional user per year.
For example, if the Pro plan costs $149 per year (for 1 user) and you want to have a team of 3 (including you), it would be $249.
Can I expand my team size later?
Yes, you'll have the ability to upgrade to expand your team size if you wish.
For example, if you sign up for 1 user for $149, then decide you want to expand it to 3, you'll have the ability to pay just $100 more to upgrade to a team size of 3.
Is there a way to hide a timeline from other people on a team?
No, everyone on the team can see and work on each other's timelines.
If you're interested in this though, please contact us, it may be something we can add in the future: firstname.lastname@example.org.
How many timelines can we create while on a team?
The features of the Pro plan - unlimited events, 10 timelines, etc - apply to each person on the team. For example, a 3 person team could have 30 timelines max, 10 for each person on the team.
What if I need more than 5 people on a team?
