Hi Shailaja,

You cannot assign work to the team per se. Meaning, you can't put the team name in the assignee field and that's the only way to really assign work. 

However, you can add the Team field to your screen and place the team name there for visibility. 

Ok thank you for the reply @John M Funk 

Then how the team/group can be effectively used in user stories/Issue  if it is only for display without any work assignment?

Let me try the option you suggested for visibility alone. Thank you.
