22 August: Member management and more

We’ve made it easier to manage members in your organization, plus made some other useful improvements

✨ New

We know that maintaining a knowledge is about everyone having the right access to add and access information when they need it. So with this release, we’re making it easier for you to view and manage your team members.

The new Member Settings page gives you more information at a glance. In the member list you can see each member’s role, last seen date and SSO status. You can also see an overview of the spaces each person has access to — you can click the number to find out more.

If you’re on our Pro or Enterprise plans, we also show how many teams the member is part of, and you can find out more with a click. And it’s easier to enforce mandatory SSO across your organization thanks to a new setting.

We’ve also redesigned the Teams page in Organization settings to make it easier to create and manage teams. It shows all the teams in your org, and you can click on one to see all the members. From here, you can add or remove members in bulk for fast team management.
