1 . Why need to have teams?

The "team" in WATI is to divide operators into different smaller teams. And base on the permission rule, operators who belong to the same team can see each other's tickets and vice versa if the operator doesn't belong to the team, he/she cannot see the ticket of the team.

To check which team can see the current ticket, you can click the "team" button on each ticket

2. How to add a team?

To add a team, the user needs to access the "Operator Management" screen --> "Team" tab.
