Question

What is a Team in Microsoft Teams?

Answer

Below is an outline of important information regarding Teams:

  • A Team is a predefined group of people who can collaborate on content and share tools within the Microsoft Teams application.
  • By default, Teams at BGSU are set up to be private and consist only of users formally invited by the Team Owner. 
  • A Team has its own SharePoint Site for storing, sharing and collaborating on files attached to it that is unique to that specific Team. 
  • Conversations, notes and files across Team Channels are only visible to the members of the team. 
  • A Team cannot be added to an existing SharePoint Site. ITS recommends migrating files over to the new SharePoint site associated with your Team whenever possible. 
  • Each Team can have up to 30 private channels and 200 total channels.
