Currently, everyone on a Team has access to every channel. Private channels are coming soon.
Every channel has its own conversation space, apps, notebook, document library, etc. These are organized as tabs
across the top.
Create a channel video
Tabs: Tabs, added along the top of a channel, can contain a document from your files area which is especially important
to that channel (such as a project charter), or an application like a Planner project plan, a Youtube video, or a polling
application like Polly.
Learn more about tabs.
Notify others: Notify your teammates about conversations in Teams. The Teams equivalent
of addressing someone on the To: line in an email is
@-mention. You can @mention an entire team, a channel, or an individual. Teams offers an opportunity
to replace email threads with Teams conversations.
Integrate apps: Apps, bots, and connectors integrate into a channel. You
can get data from your social media accounts like Twitter or Facebook, have a personal assistant schedule meetings and track your packages, or keep your project plans in a channel for all to find.
Learn more about using apps with Teams.
