Each Team will always have a ‘General’ channel but owners can create additional channels. This helps to divide your Teams work into sub-teams, project groups or even to discuss a certain topic.
- Go to the team name and click , then select ‘Add Channel’ from the drop-down menu.
- Enter the name and description for the channel and click ‘Add’
- All members of the Team have access to the contents (conversations, files etc) for a channel. A "private channel" allows access to a specified subset of the Team.
To create a ‘Private Channel’ click ‘Private’ on the Privacy drop down menu. This should be below the Channel name and description areas. A private channel will have its own list of owners and members, managed by a private channel owner in same way that members are managed for a Team.
