Organization and teams: The Essentials

Organizations are only supported for customers with a Google Workspace administrator and users with AppSheet Enterprise accounts. See AppSheet pricing.

An organization enables you to maintain centralized governance, but delegate team management responsibilities to team administrators.

An organization is not provided by default and is not required. If you have a Google Workspace account and an AppSheet Enterprise plan, you can reach out to AppSheet Support to request an organization.

About the organization and teams

An AppSheet organization provides organization administrators with a centralized tool to manage all of the teams in the organization and delegate team management responsibilities to team administrators.

An AppSheet organization is based on a Workspace organization. The AppSheet organization includes domain-based teams for all verified domains associated with your Workspace account allowing users to sign in with non-Google authentication methods. 

All users in a domain-based team will receive an email notification when the team is added to an AppSheet organization.

One organization can contain multiple teams based on Google groups and Workspace organizations.

An AppSheet team is a group of AppSheet users who are members of a business unit. Teams provide team root and administrator accounts with centralized tools for managing governance, security, policies, analytics, and billing of team members to ensure that AppSheet is compliant with the business unit's requirements. Common assets like data sources and user domains can be defined once by the team root or administrator and used by all app creators in the team. 

Team root privileges are automatically assigned to Google Workspace admins with:

The following figure shows the hierarchical relationship between an organization, and its teams and members. As shown, there can be multiple organization admins, team admins, and team members; however, there can only be one team root account.
