I need to invoice different clients for different droplets. Currently I have all my droplets under my account, I’ve set up a team for each of my clients but then find out that there is no way to move droplets between teams. This is a problem, it should be possible to do this so that the droplets can be grouped into different invoices. I know I can recreate a droplet from a snapshot, but it’s not smooth, result in changed IPs etc…

I agree that this would be a very nice feature. Like others have mentioned, I have a server on my account for a client that I would like to transfer to a team for individualized billing. Setting up a new server with a new IP would require a lot of updates for various implementations.

I recently created a team and now I wish to transfer several droplets into the team as different teams need to have different access levels.

I think the key takeaway to consider is:

Given that a team’s roles are dynamic and can change overtime, shouldn’t droplets be able to change teams as well?

A lot of brilliant use cases have already been presented above.

I think that in order for permission systems to be effective, a group within a system needs the ability to be flexible as to a.) it’s members and b.) it’s assets.

I think the DO team got the members part down pat and it would be really nice to have the assets (droplets) part in place as well.

If I were to take UNIX file permissions as an example, it’s great that I can add/remove users from groups and edit permissions per group but I think it would be very tedious if I’d have to recreate a file just to change it’s group.

Nonetheless, thank you DO team and love your excellent platform!
