Feature Spotlight: Access Sharing

ScrumGenius was made with enterprises with multiple departments, including educational institutions, in mind. We have built-in support for multiple platforms and teams so your communication will be seamless and pain-free.

If your organization has multiple teams and managers within the same company, you can purchase one license account (what we call the ‘billing account’) and share it with other managers. This means managers can manage their own teams and share access within them.

Sharing Access with Team Members

Access sharing can be done in two ways. Managers can invite team members from the Team Members section in Team Settings, or ask them to create a free ScrumGenius account. For the first option, managers simply select their team, enter the team member’s ScrumGenius email under Share Team Access, and wait for confirmation.

In return, team members can log into their account and the team will appear in the navigation bar. If they don’t have a password yet, they can request a magic link by entering the email registered with ScrumGenius. Generally, this will be the same one used for their Slack or Microsoft Teams account.

Sharing Access With Remote Teams

ScrumGenius is especially helpful for companies with teams across multiple locations and time zones. Each team member can set their own time zone in ScrumGenius so they will receive their standups at their local time.

This also means that when they wake up, these team members can view the standups their colleagues in earlier time zones have submitted. Thus remote team members can stay in the loop and keep up with the rest of their team even better than before.
