We know that not all teams follow a hierarchy structure or reflect the exact hierarchy listed in your employee database. Cross-functional teams may emerge and include individuals from different parts of the business. An agile team or working group may launch temporarily for the purpose of a short-term or ongoing projects. Take for example a standard software delivery team, where members from different practices like design, engineering, and product management work toward a common goal.
For this reason, you can create Teams in the platform to support your teams no matter the organizational structure.

The Team Lead has the ability to create a team, add or remove Team Members from the team and delete, archive, or restore the team. Additionally, the Team Lead can edit team information and create team goals. The Team Lead role can be held by multiple people on the team, and is assigned in one of these ways:
- The user is creating a Team, in that case, they are automatically assigned as a Team Lead.
- An existing Team Lead adds the user to a Team and as a Team Lead(Teams can have more than one lead.)
NOTE: When adding a user to a Team, they can be a Member OR and Team Lead, not both. If they are a member, they will need to be removed from the Team before being added as a Team Lead.
Team Members have the ability to view and create goals for the team.
As the teams create goals, Team Leads and Team Members will be assigned as Goal Owners. Whoever creates the goal is designated as the Goal Owner by default. The Goal Owner can be modified at any time. Each goal can have multiple Goal Owners. Any Team Lead and Team Member can edit and update the progress of team goals, not just the Goal Owner.
