Manage Program Area Teams

Organizations that use PEARS to record Extension data can optionally assign each user to a Program Area Team role. For organizations that work in Program Area Teams, these roles can be used to track roles within the organization and to grant permissions. Program Area Team roles include: Leader, Consultant, Member, and Follower.
User Managers and Organization Administrators can use the Manage Users page to add, edit, or remove users from Program Area Teams. Staff with these roles can also export a list of users involved in each Program Area Team. To add a user to a Program Area Team or update their role, follow the steps below. (See step 9 for instructions on removing a user from a Program Area Team.)
