"(+) Add Member" not shown when zero active members

Asked by Paul Sladen

If a team has zero active members, "Add Member" is not displayed, and the user must append "/+addmember" manually.

This occurs when eg. working around bug #633074, where the first action necessary during setup is to remove the Owner of the team from its members, leaving zero members.

This isn't a bug; there just needs to be a clarification of process--in the workaround listed in the bug description, removing the team owner shouldn't be the first action.

In the use case you've listed, the problem is that once a team has no members and no owner, no one has rights to add members to it.

To setup a team as you've been doing to workaround your other bug, you shouldn't remove the Team owner as the first action (which, since you're creating the team, I infer is you). The workflow you should follow is:

1: Create the team
2: Add the members you need to the team
3: Transfer team ownership to whichever member should have it
4: Remove yourself from the team

Can you help with this problem?
