How to enable teams in Chat
Using teams is a way for administrators to give the option for their participants to answer as a team with one voice in the Chat widget. Teams are only available in the Chat widget.
While the feature is turned on the participants can create their own teams. Administrators can also create teams in advance.
You can turn the Teams feature on in each Chat widgets’ settings > Advanced settings.

Why use teams?
Teams allow different groups of people to co-create content to a chat and still be viewable as a whole. The group can be a part of an organization, a department, or a small group of a workshop.
It gives another layer of possible facilitation methods for the admins to us, when no individual can be picked out of the group, but instead they can hear the voice of the team as one entity.
