App Team Management

What is an App Team?

An App Team is a group of developers who are all working on the building the same app. All developers have access to the same app and App Profile. If your app is set to a private visibility, your app’s discussion board is private, and viewable only by your App Team and Deere Administrators.

How do I create an App Team?

When you create an App Profile, you automatically create an App Team with just one member: yourself. You can add members to your App Team by following the instructions here.

There are no administrators in an App Team. As new members are added, they will all have the ability to add or remove team members.

How do I add other developers to my App Team?

  1. Click the My Apps icon in the top navigation, and then click on the name of your app.
  2. Click on the Team option from the left navigation.
  3. Click on the gray Invite More button at the top of the window.
  4. This will open the Invite Team Members box.
  5. Enter in the email addresses of the developers you would like to add to your team. They will all receive an e-mail notification with an invitation to your App Team. They can accept their invitations from their dashboards when they log in to developer.deere.com.

Note: Anyone added to your App Team will have the same level of access to the app as you do. There are no administrators for App Teams.

How do I remove members from my App Team?

  1. Click the My Apps icon in the top navigation, and then click on the name of your app.
  2. Click on the Team option from the left navigation.
  3. Click the Remove button next to the name of the developer you wish to remove from your team.
  4. Click the Confirm button to confirm the developer’s removal from your team. The developer will receive an email notification of their removal from the App Team. If you wish to remove the developer’s access to developer.deere.com as part of your partner group as well, contact APIInfo@JohnDeere.com.

App Discussion Boards

How do I start a discussion with my App Team?
