A team is a group of members that regularly work together and share access to Eraser files. Teams are an important concept in Eraser because all users and files in Eraser belong to a team, even if it is a single-member team.

Creating a team

A team is created during sign-up or on the first time the user navigates to the dashboard. During the team creation process you can configure:

  • Team name
  • Invited members
  • Auto-join based on email domain

File access

By default, all team members have access to all folders and files that belong to a team. This means that whatever you see on your dashboard, you can expect all other team members to see the same.

The exception is private files.

Inviting members

You can invite team members by clicking on "Invite Team Members" on the dashboard. There are two ways to invite another user to your Eraser team:

  • Send an invite email: send invite emails to specific individuals.
  • Share an invite link: anyone who clicks on this link will be able to join this team.
