How do I create/manage a Microsoft Teams Channel?


General Information About Microsoft Teams Channels

  • Channels are dedicated sections within an MS Team to keep conversations, files, topics, projects, etc., organized.
  • Files shared in Channels are stored in SharePoint. Each channel creates a new folder within the team's SharePoint Site. 
  • Channels can be open to all Team Members or they can be private.
  • Tabs/shortcuts can be added to the top of each Channel to help keep topics and files organized.
  • Each Team can have up to 200 public Channels, plus an additional 30 private Channels.   
  • Deleted channels can be restored within 30 days. During the 30 day window, a deleted channel continues to be counted towards the 200 channel or 30 private channel per team limit. After 30 days, channel and contents are permanently deleted.
