What are groups?

A Twist group organizes team members together so that you can communicate with them more easily.

If you often work with the same team members, create a group and add your teammates to it. You’ll then be able to update the group in a new thread or comment by simply typing out the group name when you’re selecting who to notify.

Only Team Admins and Members can create a group. Guests are not able to create groups, but they can still be added to a group.

Using groups

You can organize your groups in all sorts of ways including:

  • By team (i.e. Sales, Development, Support)
  • By location (i.e. Europe, America, Asia)
  • By project (i.e. New Blog, Event Planning)
  • By topic (i.e. Apple fans, Brainstorming group)

What's the difference between a Twist team and a group?

If you're new to Twist, you might not fully understand the difference between a Twist team and a group. Don't worry, it's quite straightforward!

  • A Twist team is all the people you have in your Twist workspace. For example, this could be your whole company.
  • A group is a group of people within your Twist team. For example, this could be a team within your company, such as your Marketing team.
