Methods for Viewing the account teams of a user

There are two ways to view the account teams of a user:

List view 

1. Go to [Symbol] Setup [Symbol] Quick find [Symbol] Users [Symbol] Login

2. Accounts [Symbol] Click Edit next to view [Symbol] Select My Account Teams from filter by owner

3. Displays account teams list view specific to the user

Reports 

1. Reports [Symbol] Click New report [Symbol] Accounts & Contacts [Symbol] Account with Account teams [Symbol] Click Create

2. Filters [Symbol] Add [Symbol] Enter the criteria Account owner equals user name[Symbol] Click Ok [Symbol] Run the report

Considerations 

  1. Account teams cannot be disabled, if it is referenced in Apex.
  2. Disabling account teams removes existing teams from all accounts, deletes user’s default account teams and removes the account team related list from all page layouts.
  3. My Account Teams option in the list view is displayed only when Mass Reassign Account Team option is enabled.
  4. Unless specified, removing a member of an account team does not remove from the opportunity team.
  5. If a member is removed from an account who is a part of default team, changes apply only for that record.
  6. If a deactivated user has ‘read/write’ access (Account, contact, opportunity, case) gets ‘read only’ access when activated.
