The option available within the general area include:

Site Name: The site name is the name that will display at the top of your site below the navigation bar, and on the login page.

Site Address: The URL for your site. Here you can choose to update your site address, domain, and add a custom domain.

  • Teamwork site address: Choose your site address; the name that will be shown here is the name you selected when you initially set up the site. To change this, enter the text in the field and save your changes.  If this is not available, you will receive a message prompting you to contact our support team; we will see if we can make this available.
  • Custom Domain: You can set a custom domain for your site: Simply create a CName record and point it to your teamwork.com site (eg. yourcompany.teamwork.com ). (You usually do this with the company you registered your domain name with eg.GoDaddy.com)
    • Verify the CName record is working. Once you have created the CName record and you have verified it is now pointing to your site (eg. Browse to your custom domain in a browser and you should see a Teamwork message).
    • Update your site settings. Keep in mind that CNAME changes with your domain provider can take up to 24 hours to propagate fully.
    • Log in to your Teamwork account, click your profile icon to the top right and choose settings, select general, click edit under the site address, and then click on the custom domain button.
    • Note:
      • SSL is not available on custom domain names.
      • Do not use a DNS A record for your custom domain. The DNS record you need to create is a CName record.
      • Custom domains are available on the per-user Premium plan and above, as well as certain legacy plans.
