Add someone to a supporting team

To add an employee or community member to a supporting team, follow these steps:

  1. Open the supporting team to which you want to add someone.
  2. On the left side of the page, click the Add Members button.
  3. Choose one of the following filters to view a list of people who can be added:
    • My Organization—Colleagues and staff who belong to the employee organization.
    • My Community—Members of your hub who joined with a community account. Community members can include stakeholders who aren't members of your organization who were invited to join your hub using a community account. Community members can also be any member of the public who has created a community account.
      Note:

      If you can't find who you're looking for, they may not be a part of your hub yet. If the person is an employee or colleague, an administrator must add them to the employee organization. If they're outside of your organization, they must either create a community account or be invited to the community organization.

    • The World—Anyone who has a community account or ArcGIS Online account for their organization.
  4. Select the people to add to the team and click Add.
    Note:

    If you don't have the Assign Members privileges, the people you add are not added to the team automatically. They must accept their team invitation through email before they appear as members of a supporting team. See Configure roles and privileges for ArcGIS Hub for more information.
