Today we are excited to introduce Divi Teams, a new foundation that we will continue to build upon to improve collaboration and efficiency for Divi agencies and freelancers. Divi Teams allows you to invite people to be a part of your Elegant Themes account, and to control the permissions granted to each. You can give your team members access to your products and services such as Divi and our other themes and plugins (including the ability to generate and manage API Keys), Premium Support, and Divi Cloud so that your entire team can function effectively while building websites for your clients.
Each of your team members get their own account with their own username and password, along with the ability to manage the parts of their account (or the accounts of their fellow team members) that you give them access to.
As we continue to release new products and features, Divi Teams will play an ever-increasingly productive role in the way you build and manage Divi websites.
Collaborate With Your Team
Your team members inherit the full benefits of your Elegant Themes account, including premium support, Divi Cloud storage, the ability to create and manage API Keys, and access to downloads, all for a fraction of the cost of a normal membership. This allows teams to work together and properly delegate tasks without the account owning serving as a bottleneck. Your designers can access Divi and use Divi Cloud. Your developers can set up new websites and generate API keys. Your accountant can access billing records. Furthermore, everyone can contact our support team and access our support services. Note that support for products in the Divi Marketplace is still limited to the main account owner since support in the marketplace isn’t provided by our team.
Get Unlimited Divi Cloud Storage For All Team Members At No Additional Cost
For those who have purchased unlimited Divi Cloud storage, Divi Teams is a great feature and an incredible value. Each of your team members get their own Divi Cloud library authenticated with their own username and password. They also get unlimited cloud storage at no additional cost beyond the small price of their team seat. Instead of paying $185 per year to give someone their own Elegant Themes account and unlimited Divi Cloud storage, you can simply add them as a team member for as little as $1.50 per month. Plus, all your billing is consolidated into one account for easier management.
Divi Teams Sharing Coming Soon
Soon, you will be able to share Divi Cloud items amongst your team and control what your team members can do with each or your Divi Cloud libraries. You could even share custom layouts with clients as a way to provide extra value with your website package. So stay tuned for our Divi Cloud sharing update coming very soon!
Let Us Help Your Clients For You
Divi Teams can also be used for your clients as a way to grant them access to our support services. If you want to allow your clients to be more self-sufficient, inviting them to your team under the Client role is a great way to give them more freedom as part of your normal maintenance package. You can give your clients a better experience without having to pay full price for an additional membership, and you get to pass those savings on to them.
You as the account owner, along with anyone on your team with the appropriate permissions, can manage client accounts and their API Keys.
How To Use The Divi Teams Management System
Let’s take a closer look at how Divi Teams works. You will notice a new Team tab in your Elegant Themes account. Here you can see how many team seats you have available and a list of your active team members along with their roles and account statuses. Account owners, or team members with the appropriate permission, can use this portal to manage your team.
Purchasing Team Seats
Teams seats are very inexpensive. We wanted to make the cost associated with on-boarding new team members as affordable as possible while still subsidizing the cost associated with support, cloud storage and bandwidth. You can add team seats for $2 per month, or as little as $1.50 per month if you switch to a yearly billing cycle. It’s easy to add or remove seats at any time.
If you purchase team seats today, you can take advantage of our introductory pricing and get an even biggest discount. Get up to 40% off and purchase team seats for as little as $1.08. Purchase seats today and lock in 40% savings for life!
Inviting Members To Your Team
You, or anyone on your team with the team management permission, can invite new people to your team. Invitees will receive an email with instructions on how to confirm their account and join your team. Within the team table, you can see a list of all team members along with their account statuses. “Active” members have accepted their invite. “Pending” members are still pending activation. If a member is pending, team managers can choose to re-send their invite email or revoke their invitation.
Managing Members And Their Roles
Clicking the settings icon next to any team member will give you an overview of their account. You can view their account information, such as their name, email address and a list of their API Keys. You can also see a clear list of their permissions, along with an option to change their role.
Understanding Your Team Roles
Divi Teams comes with five default roles that cover most use cases, including:
Adding New Roles With Custom Permissions
The default roles are available for your convenience, but you are not limited to these presets. Using the role editor, you can create your own roles with your own sets of permissions. Click the Edit User Roles button and then click Add New Role to create a custom role.
Divi Cloud Team Overview
If you open the Divi Cloud tab, you can see a list of your team members and the status of their Divi Cloud accounts, including how many items they have stored and whether or not they have exceeded their free storage limit. In the future, this will also serve as an interface to allow for Divi Cloud sharing between team members!
