Marie and Chris discuss the big round of updates that went out around Team Management. There is a new “admin” role that it took us years of having a Teams product to understand that many teams could actually use. In the end, these updates to how Teams work make them way more useful. Teams can self-manage themselves in a way they never could before, and we’re hoping that makes people much happier with the product, less likely to leave because of something silly like access controls, and reduce support.

Sponsor: Jetpack Backup + WooCommerce

Aside from Jetpack Backup just being really easy to use and the most trustworthy way to back up your entire WordPress site, it’s the only backup solution that works with eCommerce (WooCommerce) in the way you really need it to. Say you need to rollback to a version of your site from 4 days ago because something bad happened that hosed the site. Rolling back is a good idea, that’ll get you up and running right away, but when you revert a database back 4 days, that could wipe out all the eCommerce orders and product changes that have happened in that time: not good. Not with Jetpack Backup, it will restore to 4 days ago, but then replay all the orders and product changes, so your store is up to date with reality. Vital.
