Creating Company Teams

The structure of a company account should reflect the purchasing organization, whether it is simple and flat or a complex organization with different teams for each subdivision and division of the company.

If your Magento installation is configured to allow companies to manage their own accounts, setting up the company structure is one of the first tasks for a company administrator to complete after the account is approved. In the company account, the structure of the company is represented as a tree with the company admin at the top.
