HI Varun,
You can try below code
trigger AddOppOwnerToSalesTeam on Opportunity (after insert) {

//adds the Opportunity Owner into the sales team automatically whenever the Opportunity is created

List<Opportunity> opps=new List<Opportunity>();

OpportunityTeamMember otm=new OpportunityTeamMember();

List<OpportunityTeamMember> oppTeamMember =new List<OpportunityTeamMember>();

opps=[SELECT Id,OwnerId
FROM Opportunity
WHERE id IN:Trigger.New];

for(Opportunity ops:Trigger.New){
otm.OpportunityId=ops.Id;
otm.UserId=ops.OwnerId;
otm.TeamMemberRole=’Sales Manager’;
// otm.OpportunityAccessLevel=’Read’;
oppTeamMember.add(otm);

}

if(oppTeamMember.size()>0
insert oppTeamMember;
}

}

Hi,

Why are we using the below condition 


if(oppTeamMember.size()>0 insert oppTeamMember; }

The trigger .New will acess the newly inserted values right.

Thanks,
Vijay.

HI Vijay,
In a scenario when there are no records, it will throw a null pointer exception when you are inserting oppTeamMember during runtime. To avoid this, it is a best practice to check for the size of oppTeamMember and then insert.
