Continued from Invite members to your Team
Now that you have more members on your team, let’s start talking to them!
To do this, you’ll create something called a Channel. A Channel lets you have a private conversation and share files with a specific group. You can create as many different channels as you want, so your Marketing team can discuss strategy in #SellOurStuff while your Engineering team hunts down bugs in #DevTeam without being distracted by each other’s conversations.
1. To create a channel, click the blue plus sign '+', then select Create a Channel.
2. Choose a name for your channel, then click Create. Your new channel will appear below the name of your Team.
3. Once you’ve made your new channel, you can invite members to the channel. In your channel, click the human outline in the top right to reveal the channel members list.
Next, click the blue plus sign above the members list.
You’ll see a list of members of your team. Click Invite next to any name to add them to this channel, or select multiple users at once and click Invite Selected to invite all of them.
Note: Once you’ve invited someone their name will disappear from the list. If you don’t see someone listed on the invites page, they’ve already been invited or are a member of this channel.
4. Start talking! Every member of the channel will see everything anyone else says. If you want to get someone’s attention, you can “ping” them by typing an @ sign followed by their display name. For example, if you type @Chelsea before your message, Chelsea will get a notification so she can instantly tell someone is talking to her in this channel.
Need to share files with your teammates? You can upload an attachment that everyone in the Channel can view and download.
