How do I create a team?

In the menu item "Teams" you can create and edit teams at any time. Each team needs at least one team leader and should have at least 10 team members.

As the name suggests: Teams are the heart of teamecho. In the teams, feedback is processed and thus leads to sustainable improvements. Team members are either created with their personal e-mail address or with an individual user name.

The easiest way is to use the personal email addresses, as the teamecho system can then also automatically send reminders, invitations and links to active surveys directly to team members and managers. Here you will learn how to add employees without email addresses in teamecho.


1. Go to the menu item "Teams". In the future you will find an overview of all active and archived teams and you can create new teams or edit existing teams at any time.

2. Click on "Create team". 


3. Who will be the leader for this team?

At least one person must be specified as team leader.

Important: Team leaders do not automatically participate in the surveys!

In order to also participate in the survey as a team leader, the e-mail addresses must also be entered in the "Team members" field. This is necessary because only team members take part in surveys.

4. Who are the team members?

A team should consist of at least 10 people. Each team member is entered here with the personal e-mail address. Surveys will only be sent to these e-mail addresses.

5. Create team members without personal e-mail addresses

In order to be able to participate in the surveys without a personal e-mail address, team members are created with a personal user name (usually first name.last name). Again, a team should have at least 10 members in total.

Attention: This additional option must be enabled by administrators in advance in the "Company settings".

Team size

When defining the team size, the anonymity of the employees should be the first priority. This is because the greater the anonymity perceived by the employees, the more active the use. Teams should therefore comprise 10 or more people.

The structure of the teams should make sense above all for the employees themselves. Ideally, teams should include people who work together frequently and have a common leader. In this way, relevant issues can be highlighted in the immediate sphere of action of all participants and worked on together. For a good overview, teams can also be grouped into departments and superdepartments.
