Board Member vs Team Member

Hi guys,

Can someone please explain why I would need to become a Board Member if I'm already a Team Member?

  • Board Members  - A 'Normal' member is simply a member of a board. Normal members can edit or add to the board without restrictions.
  • Team Members - You can make a board belong to a team, so a team member is a user who belongs to the same team as the board.,that%20the%20boards%20belongs%20to.

If the boards permissions (commenting) do not allow team members the same access as a board member then you would need to be a board member in addition to a team member.

Hi Brant, 

NOTE: If a board belongs to a team, you can enable the setting " Allow Team Members to Join," which will allow any team member to join the board without being invited. To enable this, the board must belong to a team and the board cannot be private.

We have enabled that setting but still our team members are not able to see the shared board.
