Points to consider

  • Tailoring the hierarchy isn't mandatory. The default archetypes and hierarchy we provide are suitable for most scenarios.

  • Don't re-create your organizational hierarchy, teams, or departments in archetypes.

  • Always try to build on the existing archetypes and hierarchy to meet new requirements.

  • Only create new archetypes when they're truly needed.

  • Don't create archetypes for environments like development, test, and production.
