Team Create is a Roblox Studio tool that allows for simultaneous place editing with other people. Once enabled, developers with the correct permissions can invite friends to join and edit. Everyone editing the place can see the changes others are making while they work.
Enabling Team Create
In order to start editing a place with friends, first make sure the place is published to Roblox. Once it’s published, access the View tab and click the Team Create button.
With the window open, press the Turn ON button. This will restart Studio, so don’t be alarmed when it temporarily reloads.
Adding and Removing Users
Once a place has Team Create enabled, the window will change to show a list of users who are allowed to join and edit the place.
You can add a friend to the list by entering their Roblox username in the “Invite a friend” field at the top of the Team Create window:
To remove someone from the list, simply right-click their name and select Delete. That user will be ejected from the active session and won’t be able to join again unless invited.

Accessing a Session
Those who have been invited to edit a place can join a Team Create session by navigating to the place’s page on the Roblox website, clicking the button, and selecting Edit. This will launch Studio and automatically join the current session.
The following sections explain what working together in Roblox Studio will look like.
Each user in a Team Create session is assigned a color which appears behind their character thumbnail in the Team Create window. When a user selects objects, a selection box in that user’s color will appear around them in the 3D view.
Likewise, the objects in the Explorer window will show a colored dot indicating which user has them selected.
In a Team Create session, multiple users cannot make changes to the same script at the same time. If someone begins editing a script, it will be automatically locked to that user. As soon as that user closes the script tab, the script changes will be saved and the lock released, allowing others to edit it.
Undo and redo work mostly the same as they do in solo mode, with a few small differences. If multiple people have made edits to a part or instance, pressing Undo for that object will revert it to the state before you made a change and revert changes that other editors may have made after your last edit.

A useful tool while collaborating in Team Create is the Chat panel, accessible via View → Chat. To start chatting, click on the text box, type a message, and press Enter to send it. Messages in the chat window will be labeled by the user’s color outlined above.
Publishing and Saving
Saving changes while using Team Create works a bit differently than in solo Studio. When Team Create is active, Studio will auto-save the project to the cloud every five minutes. Changes made between auto-saves will not be published, so updating a live game still requires explicit publishing via File → Publish to Roblox.
Rolling Back Changes
Owners can revert changes just like anyone can for games made in solo mode:
- On the game’s page, click the button.
- Select Configure this Place.
- Click on Version History.
- Choose an earlier version and click Revert to this version to roll back.
Turning Off Team Create
To stop using Team Create and return to solo mode, click the button at the bottom of the Team Create window and select Disable Team Create. Any other user in the session will be ejected and won’t be able to join again until Team Create is re-enabled.
