TL;DR: We’ve added some incredible new Pro features to 1Password Teams and we’re extending our Early adopter special that gives you all these Pro features at the Standard price! Sign up today or continue reading for more details.
We’ve been continually working on 1Password Teams since we introduced it last November and over the (Canadian) summer we finished putting the final touches on some awesome new Pro features.
I’d love to share these with you now while the weather is still nice. ?
Let’s start with our new advanced organizational features that give you even more control and customization for your team. From there we can jump to the new activity tracking feature and then we’ll button things up with some exciting pricing news.
Organize Your Team With Custom Groups
Since the beginning 1Password Teams has allowed you to assign teammates to be part of the Administrators, Owners, or Team Members groups.
This is great and provides enough organization for many teams, but larger teams need even more power and flexibility so we added the ability to create your own custom groups.
Using the Admin Console you can now organize your team into groups however you like. Once organized, you can easily share information securely with those who need it, allowing you to quickly control who has access to key information.
To create a new group, simply go to the Groups section of your Admin Console and click the blue plus button. You’re free to create as many groups as your heart desires ❤️
Grant Authority Using Custom Roles
The Owner, Administrator, and Team Member groups provide a great starting point for controlling who on your team can access the Admin Console, manage people, control access, recover accounts, and more.
But companies with advanced business needs will require more flexibility than these predefined roles allow.
That’s no problem whatsoever as it’s now super easy to designate which permissions each of your groups have. By picking and choosing from 9 predefined permissions, you can tailor the perfect role to suit your specific business needs.
For example, let’s say we wanted to allow managers to create vaults, manage their employees, and restore access to those who forget their Master Password. To do that, we could create a custom Managers group and assign their permissions as follows:
As great as this is for managers, the real joy comes from knowing they no longer need to bug you every time someone joins their team ?
Using Activity Log to Review & Track Events
In short, you can now easily see who has changed what where and when. That’s a bit of a tongue twister, so let me try saying it again with a few more words ?
With our new Activity Log, you can now see a detailed history of changes made to your Vaults, Groups, and Team Members.
When a member of your team adds an item, creates a group, grants access to a vault, or makes other changes, each action is recorded and can be seen in the Activity Log.
This is super handy when you want to see what a particular user has been up to or review what changes have been made to a vault. All you need to do is go to the detail page for a particular person or vault and review the Activity Log to see what changes have been made and when.
For example, this screenshot shows the Activity Log for the Production Servers vault. You can see that I gave Jeff access and he then proceeded to update items in the vault and granted access to the Sysadmins group.
It’s great being able to see this history on each details page as it allows you to zero in, but you can also drink from the firehose ? by going to the Activity Log in the Admin Console where you can see the full list of all changes within your team.
Extending Earl’s Early Deal!
When we released 1Password Teams we launched with Earl’s early deal, giving away all the features of the Pro plan for the low, low price of the Standard plan.
With all these new bells and whistles I thought it would be awesome to extend Earl’s special launch special until October 15th so everyone could enjoy these new features.
And best of all, you and your team will lock in the Standard price for as long as you’re subscribed. Even teammates you add after October 15th will still get the same awesome deal.
