Manage Team is an experimental feature. We do not recommend using this feature in production environments. It is currently under development and is only available to a limited number of cPanel & WHM customers. It will be available for testing in future releases. For more information about the development of Manage Team, read our Manage Team roadmap.

To edit a team user, click Edit User in the List Team table (cPanel » Home » Preferences » Manage Team). A new interface will appear. It displays the various settings for a team user, such as their username, password, role, and other settings.
