What do you think of channels

Overview of teams and channels

Try it!

Teams in Microsoft Teams are groups of people who work together professionally, handle projects together, or have common interests.

Teams are made up of two types of channels - standard channels (available and visible to everyone) and private channels (focused, private conversations with a specific audience). Each channel is dedicated to a topic such as "Team Events", a department name, or just for fun. In the channels you hold meetings, have conversations and work on files with other users.

The tabs at the top of each channel take you to your favorite files, apps, and services.

Add a tab

  • Select the plus sign next to the tabs.

    For example, add Planner to create a project plan to track team tasks.

Pinning and detaching a channel

If you have a lot of channels, pin the most important ones so they're easy to find.

  • Select the channel you want to pin, then select More channels > To pin out.

  • Select the channel you want to solve, then More channels > To solve, and see what else you can do.
