Teams are created for a variety of reasons within Tempo - sometimes its purely for reporting purposes. A company may have a team of all employees that live in Canada so that they can report on the time being logged only by those employees.
When it comes to planning work for particular Tempo Teams in Planner by Tempo - it helps to have a classification system to distinguish between Administrative teams (like the Canadian employee team mentioned earlier) or a Self-Managed team that will be working on specific Jira epics. Having these two types of teams available for a Tempo Team Administrator can help reduce confusion when a team member comes up as a shared resource instead of being dedicated to a specific team working on a particular epic.
Planner by Tempo now gives those with the proper permissions to make the distinction between these two types of teams - as shown below.
