Once a team has been created by a participant or person using the 'Create a Team' function it will show in the list of team names in a drop-down menu when a registrant goes to sign up for a team. If you do not check 'Allow Public to Join Existing Teams?' then your created teams will only be for those who created and joined them during registration. Unless your event involves required teams during registration i.e. a corporate adventure race with teams of 4 or a Triathlon relay, we suggest you allow the public to join existing teams.
- Login to your dashboard as an Event Organizer
- Navigate to the left of your screen and select 'Settings', followed by 'Teams' from the drop-down menu
- Check the box labeled 'Allow Public to Join Existing Teams?'
- Scroll to the bottom and hit 'SAVE' before navigating away from this page
