I work on a web app where the users make forecast of people.

They have to inform for each person with forecast if it's a "TEAM MEMBER" (i. e. the user is the manager of the resource) or a "CONTRIBUTION" (i. e. the user ask the resource from another team).

I don't know how to name this "status" of the people. Do you know any word describing if a person belongs to the team?

    Membership: team or external (or third-party, etc)?

  • Perhaps Contributors for "team members" and requesting visitors for non affiliate, to convey the idea of membership vs partnership.

  • Well, the difference is in which manager the individual reports to.

It sounds to me that what you are looking for is

affiliation: a person’s connection with a political party, religion, etc.


Your question partially contains the answer:

    I think the question is asking what to call this member/non-member status -- that is, what the title of a table column would be above a list of "member/contributor/contributor/member/member..." He already has the words member and contributor.
