Larakits supports team billing that allows your user’s to create and join teams. The team is a great way for sharing same resources among the team member’s.

To enable team, you have to use Larakits\CanJoinTeam trait into your User model.


namespace App;

use Larakits\Billable;
use Larakits\CanJoinTeam;
use Larakits\HasApiToken;
use Illuminate\Notifications\Notifiable;
use Illuminate\Foundation\Auth\User as Authenticatable;

class User extends Authenticatable
    use Notifiable, Billable, HasApiToken, CanJoinTeam;

You may also need to configure your team billing plans. Please consult the configuration team billing plans documentation.
