Within the Teams tab, conversations are separated based on the team and channel where they were started and files are separated to the team and channel where they were uploaded.

  • If you click on titles with an ellipsis (...) next to it, it will expand/collapse a menu where you can find different channels associated to the Team.
    • You can view the conversations specific to each channel team by clicking the appropriate Channel title (example: General, Protocol rewrite suggestions, Resupply) on the left and then on the Conversations tab. 

Posting Within a Channel

 

There are two different ways to send messages, so it is important to make sure you are sending your message the correct way.

  • If you are responding to a specific conversation or topic within a channel, click on Reply before starting your message so your response stays with the original thread.
  • If you are starting a new conversation, you can just type your message into the field at the bottom of the screen. If you want to bring your message to a specific person's attention, put an @ and then type in their name to tag them. That person will then receive an alert that a message mentioning them has been created. If you want to bring a message to all members of a channel's attention, put @team at the start of your post.

Adding Files to Conversations

 
  1. Click on the paper clip underneath the chat field. This will give you the options for where to upload your file from.

  1. After locating the file, click on it, then click Open.
  1. The file you are uploading will appear in the chat field. If you wish to add any text to go along with your file, you can type it in at this point. Once you have finished, press enter or click on the clipboard_ecc05e9db03ace8a68a0d04d5d96857dc.pngbutton.

Uploading a file this way will also add it to your Files tab.

Sending/Forwarding an E-mail to a Channel

 

If you have received an e-mail that you want to send to everyone in a channel, Teams has an easier way than finding each person's e-mail address individually:

  1. Select the channel you want to send the e-mail to, then click on the ellipsis at the top of the window and select Get email address

  1. Click on the Copy button to add the channel's e-mail address to your clipboard
  1. Paste the channel's e-mail address into your Outlook. After making any changes you want/need to make to the e-mail, click Send.

Managing Your Notifications

 

Being a member of multiple teams can sometimes lead to you receiving a large number of notifications. This is how you can choose what notifications to receive:

  1. Click on your profile picture, then choose settings from the menu.

  • Banner - these notifications will appear in the lower right-hand corner of your screen. 
  • Banner and email - in addition to a banner notification, you have the option of receiving e-mail alerts. 
  • Show in Feed Only - this option will have alerts appear in your feed 
  • Off - this option will stop alerts
