Re-Name "MY TEAM" group as "ALL USERS" group

We have multiple groups in our account. We hope to isolate the content that is shared between groups in our account because there may be NPI (Not Public Information) or sensitive/confidential information in our multiple group folders. It is important that users see what they should see. But for security purposes, it is also VERY IMPORTANT that users be restricted from seeing what they should not.

We think the label of "MY TEAM" is vague. Since all added users are added to a group named "MY TEAM," someone from group 3 may want to address all users of group 3 by choosing to share with "MY TEAM." That person may not realize that he/she also shared confidential information to group 1, 2, 4, and 5 as well.

We understand this change request affects Wrike's business practice with all its organizational and business relationships, but we propose that you rename "MY TEAM" group as "ALL USERS" group. 

All users added to the account will be added to a group called "ALL USERS" This label brings much more clarity in sharing. If a user did not intend to share to all users, he/she will certainly not share content with group labelled "ALL USERS." 

Each group could then decide who should be in their all member or group team (MY TEAM) and increase the certainty of sharing appropriately because groups are more accurately labelled.

Thank you.

Hi Dakila, thank you for writing this up, it's definitely an interesting way of looking at groups! The My Team group doesn't actually include everyone in the account, it's made up of all Regular Users, but not External Users and Collaborators. An option to rename the default group to something which suits the needs of a certain team does make sense!

I totally agree with the OP (and clicked the + button). We have over 3000 users and every few days someone creates a new project or folder and adds it to My Team. Then the Admins have to go in and fix it! Can we please give our admins the ability to change the name of this universal group?

Thank you!🤚

I 2nd that!  I created an account for our team and the team name is now "MyName's Team".  That isn't appropriate as it's not "My Team".  How do I rename the account name???

An administrator could rename the group:

 

On the top right of the ribbon, select “Account Management.” Hover your cursor over the group that you wish to rename. Right click over the group that you wish to rename.  Select “Rename” from the dialogue box. Type the name that you wish to rename the group.

@City while you can't rename the My Team group, you can change your accounts name. Our Help Center has instructions on how exactly to do that.

Please address this issue by allowing us to rename (on an individual account basis) the "My Team" group or make the default "All Users". "My Team" is extremely misleading and, as others have said, we have users sharing things with this group thinking it impacts only a few members rather than all Regular users in our company. 

Not only do they get visibility to it, but they also have the ability to change and edit things erroneously shared with them. We do not set up special permissions because the folder sharing should only let people see and edit items in folders that are shared with them.

Please provide an update regarding this feature. Thank you!

I agree with this completely.  Every time we bring on a new user, they get confused and share their stuff with "my team" instead of the group they belong to.  

 

Please Implement this update soon!

I agree with renaming this feature to "All Users". My problem right now is that "My Team" isn't even an option in my list. What would cause that?

I would like to bring the attention of this to the developers again. As new Wrike customers, this caused immediate confusion in our company. Think about it: If you ask 100 employees what the term "My team" could mean, probably not a single person would say "Everybody in the organization".

To change this term to "All users" cannot be a major programming task, so please consider changing it. Thank you.

Hi everyone, thanks a lot for your continued support here!
I've checked with the team - they don't have plans to change "My Team" group title in the nearest future. I'll keep asking for updates and once I have news, I'll make sure to share with you!

I agree with this request.  It should be something like @allregularusers, but I'd settle for @allusers (although that's not entirely accurate either).   @my team is entirely misleading and a real mis-step on the part of Wrike.  If you are marketing this product to a company to use with their whole company, you have to understand that "teams" in companies are based on departments or projects.  The team is NEVER absolutely everyone in the organization, unless it's extremely small.  Our account is only 20 seats right now, but even within that 20 seats, we have 3 distinct teams, and several sub-teams under those.  With so many people working remotely right now, Wrike must be seeing a spike in usage - and fixing this seems like it should be easy, and would be helpful to those of us who are moving almost entirely to Wrike for collaboration right now.  The last thing we need, on top of everything else, is to be worrying that while we're dealing with COVID-19, someone is sharing things in Wrike to people that don't need to see them just because a simple name isn't changed.  Shame on your developers for not prioritizing such an easy fix.

We just signed up for Wrike and it is the first confusion we are having within our organization. What is the logic of the term "My Team" meaning all users?

Hi Ronald Dean, sorry for the late reply here! 

I'm sorry to hear about your confusion, I'll pass your feedback to our Product team!

In terms of the naming, My Team group includes all Regular Users in the account, so the name distinguishes the internal organization members and external users & collaborators. You can also create User Groups for different departments (more info here). Hope it helps!
