Difference use cases of "Teams" and "Spaces" for teams?

Chris H August 19, 2023

I notice that there are two ways in Confluence to create a page about your team. You can either create a team under  the "Teams" drop down or you can go to "Spaces" and create a space using the "team" template. 


What are the differences? Should you create one of each and the Spaces is used for your team to collaborate while the "Teams" page is for people external to your team to see what your team does? 

Can anybody share their use cases for each?

Hi think you are spot on @chris

You can think of "Teams" as a user managed version of Groups on steroids. Teams allow you to group a number of users together, shows information about what they've been working on and allows the teams to provide information on how to get in touch and give them kudos. 

Another big advantage of Teams is that you can @mention them, and all members of the team will be notified

A Team space is a collaboration space where the team can create and share content specific to their team.
