FAQs

Every team has its own set of channels (starting with the general channel), and the member of that team gets to decide what they want the rest of their channels to focus on. Channels allow team members to communicate in different conversations about specific topics. Channels are devoted to specific projects, initiatives, and locations. Channels are public to everyone in a team, but members can choose what channels they wish to communicate and take part in. Members can favourite a channel by clicking into the star.

Channels can be used for discussions, sending documents, hosting team meetings, and more.
