Teams and channels let you and your team share thoughts, organise information, and help bring everyone together in Microsoft Teams:
Team: This is a broad group of people who work together to get something done, such as a major company initiative, specialised projects, or just for fun.
Channel: This is a for a specific area within the larger team, such as a channel for design, marketing, or budget to support a team’s objective, where people can have focused conversations.
Use a channel to post announcements, hold meetings, share updates, and find files and information.
Do this activity to get teams and channels to work for you:
Create a team and then create channels. (Don’t worry, you can always delete this afterwards.)
Add details and decide between these channel types:
Standard: Anyone on the team can see this channel.
Private: Only invited people can view and access it.
Once you’re in a channel, create a post, choose a post type, and format it.
Add an @mention to get someone’s or everyone’s attention.
Try inserting an image or a file to increase participation among people, and then post it.
If someone shares a file, you can find it under the Files tab in a channel.
Look for someone else’s team or channel and post something.
