Pick a team and channel

A team is a collection of people, conversations, files, and tools — all in one place. A channel is a discussion in a team, dedicated to a department, project, or topic.

The best way to get familiar with teams and channels is to pick a team and channel and start exploring!

Select the Teams on the left side of the app and then pick a team. 

If you're not on a team this area will be empty until an Administrator or Manager adds you to a team.

Select a channel and explore the Conversations, Files, and other tabs.
