Using Teams Channels
A Microsoft Teams site is a collection of channels. Teams channels are used to collaborate on a specific topic through channel meetings, conversation posts and uploaded files.
Meet in Channels
- You can start an instant channel meeting using Meet Now or schedule a channel meeting.
- If you previously used channels within a Teams site to offer breakout sessions, please use the new Breakout Rooms feature as a channel meeting instead.
- When you record a meeting from a channel, the recording will appear in the channel as a post.
- After the channel meeting, the attendance report is available for download in the channel.
Post in Channels
- Channels also offer threaded discussion posts. Click or tap the Create a Conversation button to start a post.
- If someone has already created a post on a subject, simply reply to the post.
- Any files attached to a post automatically appear in the Files tab, found at the top of the channel.
- Use @ to mention someone or type @channel to notify all members of the channel.
- You can limit a search to your current Teams channel. Press Ctrl-F (Windows) or Command-F (Mac). At the top of the Teams window, the find box searches only within the channel. Pictured below is a search limited to the "Golden Eagle Care and Feeding" channel.
- To edit or delete your posts, hover over the post's top-right corner to reveal the three-dots/more-actions icon. Click or tap the three-dots icon to show a menu. From the menu, select Edit or Delete.
