Within Teamwork, you can associate each individual user and project on your site with a specific company.
You will create the owner company when you set up your site, and you can then add additional external companies at any time.
To view your companies, go to the People area at the top of your site and select the Companies tab.
Companies provide a way to group people together for privacy settings. Users in the owner company can have higher levels of permissions granted to them than people in external companies.
You can use external companies as a way to create departments within your Teamwork site. For example, creating one external company for your design team and placing all members of your design department in this company.
Your owner company will have an Owner label beside its name. You will see a total count of the number of companies on your site beside the quick search field.
Each company will show a count of how many standard users (green), collaborators (pink) and contacts (blue) they have.
Note: A user can only occupy one company at any time.
