Creating a Team

To request a new Team, please submit a request form.

You will list out the owners of the team in the form. Only the owners will be added when the Team is initially created and any owner can add the rest of the team members. See the Manage Permissions section for more details.

Once you have a Team, you can create new channels and tabs as needed. Channels are a way to organize your Team in different sections; Tabs are sections within your Channel that provide content or a connection to another software.

  2. Choose from the available apps and connectors within Teams such as OneNote, Planner, or Adobe Creative Cloud.
