Question

How to create a "Team" with my existing account?

Dear DO team,

I would like to create one more team for my account, but I don’t see the “Create a Team” menu position, like described in this tutorial – https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-use-teams-on-digitalocean#how-to-create-a-team?

Please advise.

Thanks for following up @McCloud. You’re right, once you’ve converted an existing account to a team account, you won’t be able to create new teams under it as it is a team and not a regular account. Your workaround is actually the right course of action in this case :)

Does the Create a Team button show up if you log out and log back in?

Thank you, @kamaln7.

Nothing has changed after log out and log in.

After some experimenting – I suspect, it has to do with me did a “transformation” of a personal account into a team with transition of all droplets, etc. It seems to me, that this “transformed” account behaves differently from a simple account. When I have added a new member to my original “main” team, this new member has a “Create Team” button in his settings. My issue is solved with this workaround – just create one more “normal” user and it behaves as documented.

Thanks to all participants!

I have 4 team now and before I can create a team with base account bill splitting or Paypall account. Now, can’t create another team without CreditCard? Because I just able to create team with paypal payment. Thanks and regard…

How many teams do you have been created and/or is your account a member of? I believe there is a limit of 15

Thank you, @jasonjpeters.

But my account is a member of only one team.
