A team is a shared inbox between multiple users. Each account will have a minimum of one team.
When should I configure a new team?
When users provide the same service for customers, you can group them under the same team.
If all your support team members provide the same service for customers with no specialization, you can put them under the same team.
On the other hand, if your support users have a specialization, let's say some of them is responsible for refunds, then you can have those group of users under a different team that you can name Refund Team.
What can I achieve by having teams?
Bots route conversations to teams, so for example, if the customer asks the bot to take to the refund team, the bot will route and assign the conversation to one of the refund team users.

Team shared inbox
