Teams help you easily organize your social channels with verified users.
What is a team in Planly?
Team is a group of social channels and users to easily manage social media accounts. Each Team has its own Media Library so that you don’t have to share your media with all Teams or users.
You can create teams in all pricing plans. When you create an account in Planly you get a default My Team team where you add your social channels.
You can access teams via the bottom-left corner of your screen. Click on the profile icon and it will bring the list of teams along with the number of included members and social channels. Also, you can go Settings > Teams to manage teams.
Note: Only the Account Owner can create a team and add users.
How Teams work?
Teams in Planly help you manage your media files, social channels, and team members better with organized groups. Each team has its own media files, social profiles, and team members for simplified management.
The same social channel can be included in multiple teams. Yet, media files only stay with teams.
- You can bulk-upload media files to teams and bulk-schedule posts in teams
- You can either connect social channels from the same social network (only Pinterest accounts) or from multiple social networks (1 Facebook, 2 TikTok, 2 Instagram) to a single team.
- A user can be invited to multiple teams and schedule posts
- Media files belong to Teams, not social channels.
Note: When you remove a social channel from a team the media files used for that social channel will remain in the Media Library.
How to manage teams?
Plus to the default My Team, you can create multiple teams, change names. add profile images, and users to organize social media.

- Go to Settings > Teams or, click on Teams on the bottom-left of your screen and click Manage teams
- Click Create new team
- Name your team and click Confirm
Step 1.1 One little extra yet important step is to add a profile image to your team. Adding profile image helps you to quickly scan the team and switch through teams without reading the team name.
Just click on the Team details and click Remove \ Change to update your team profile image. You can change your team profile image and name anytime you want.
Step 2. Add social channels
Once you create a Team, the next step is to connect social channels.

- Click the + (plus) icon on top of your Calendar

Depending on the social network you add, you can choose different ways to add your social channels. When you add your Pinterest account it will connect all of your existing boards to Planly.
When you add LinkedIn to Planly, it will only connect the Business Profiles to Planly
To connect TikTok you can use either the QR code method or the Planly extension method
Step 3. Invite users to Team
No team is a team without master team members. By adding users to the team, you can build your social media dream team. Adding users help you to collaborate on managing your posting, media, and social media calendar.
