Understanding Teams and Workspaces

Teams and workspaces have a many-to-many relationship. A team can be granted different levels of access to different workspaces, and multiple teams can be granted different levels of access to a single workspace.

This flexibility allows the structure of workspaces to be organization-dependent. For example, an organization might have a workspace for each of its teams. In addition, it might also have workspaces for each quarter of the year, shared with the relevant teams.
