Administrators: Get to know 1Password Teams

Hey, guys! It’s your buddy Khad from AgileBits. I’m not a system administrator, but I play one on YouTube. If your friends need a password manager, they’ll get just what the doctor ordered with 1Password. For your colleagues and team, you need the admin tools in 1Password Teams. For the challenges admins have. With the tools admins need.

The good news is that you don’t need a dedicated IT department to make the most of 1Password Teams. Everything you need to help manage your team – and let your team manage themselves – is built right in.

The tools you need

Using 1Password with a team requires more power and flexibility than using it at home or with your family. That’s why we designed 1Password Teams specifically with the needs of administrators in mind. In fact, it’s so easy to use, I’m starting to believe I really am an administrator.

Every team has different needs, so everything is completely customizable. But I haven’t met an administrator yet who doesn’t value efficiency. To help with that, we created a dedicated section for 1Password Teams on our support site where you can find everything you need in one place. Learn how to:

If you prefer a video tour, you’re in luck. I’ll show you how to:

  • add vaults
  • manage team members
  • create and manage groups
  • recover accounts
  • and more

In less than 10 minutes, you’ll have a team that functions like a well-oiled machine. (Well, I can’t stop Rick from stealing Laura’s sandwiches from the office fridge, but they’ll both always have access to all the passwords they need.)

The support you deserve

You can continue to learn at your own pace with the tutorials on 1Password Support and the 1Password Teams videos on YouTube. Or you can reach out to talk with us directly.

Whether you’re already a customer or are curious about getting started, if you have any questions or need assistance with a custom solution get in touch. Our dedicated support team is always here to help your team.

Get to know 1Password Teams: Security Audit & Watchtower

You’ve moved over to 1Password Teams, invited your team, set up custom groups and laid out a recovery plan. Simply by using 1Password, your company is now far more secure than when you started. But how can you know your team is safe from online security breaches? Your teammates could go through their passwords one by one and make them stronger, but there’s a better way: Security Audit.

Get to know 1Password Teams: Vaults and sharing

What would 1Password be without vaults? They’re where you put your most important information to keep it safe, and they’ve been a core part of the 1Password experience since the beginning. In 1Password Teams, vaults are more useful than ever. Let’s look at how vaults can help you organize and share information within your team.

Get to know 1Password Teams: Custom groups and roles

As a 1Password Teams customer, you’re in charge of tens, hundreds, or even thousands of people, passwords, and files. Thankfully we have some fantastic tools that give you flexibility and control. Two such tools are custom groups and roles:

  • Custom groups let you organize your staff in a way that makes sense. You might want to put your IT team in one group, your accounts team in another, and sales in a third. Each group has access to the vaults it needs, so new members will have be able to see the right information as soon as they join.
  • Custom roles let you decide who can perform team-level responsibilities like invite people or recover accounts—-without giving them full admin privileges. You can also grant the ability to manage people and vaults, and a lot more. These roles supersede the built-in permissions, so you can give your team members more power, or take it away. It’s entirely up to you.

Get to know 1Password Teams: The Activity Log

What is activity logging?

Activity Logging is one of those features that you can’t live without once you try it. Simply put, it’s the ability to see, at a glance, anything done by anyone on your team.

Anything?

Just about. Fire up the Activity Log and you’ll be able to find out about:

  • password changes
  • team members joining and leaving
  • device authorizations
  • vault creation and deletion
  • membership changes to groups and vaults

…and more.

For each action, you see exactly when it happened, who was involved, and who was responsible. You can sort the list by date or by person, and you can click on the names of people, vaults, and groups to go right to their details. It’s the simplest and best way to audit your team and improve security and accountability.

The best part? Like everything else in 1Password, the Activity Log is fully end-to-end encrypted. No one apart from your team administrators has access to it.
