Creating Teams in

Microsoft Teams

Last issue, we shared an introductory article on Microsoft Teams. We hope you read it and are starting to become familiar with Microsoft Teams and how it can be beneficial as you work remotely.

One of the pillars of Microsoft Teams is creating teams. A team is basically a collection of people who gather together around a common goal. Whether that is your department or a group of staff members working on a project, it’s an easy, effective way to bring needed people together to work seamlessly.

Creating a team is straightforward. We recommend downloading the Microsoft Teams app onto your computer. Once open, click “Join or Create Team” in the bottom left corner. From there, it will prompt you to name your team, add a description if needed, whether it is a public or private team, and to invite team members. Any Avamere employee with a dedicated Avamere email address will automatically be available to invite; no special invitation is needed.

Teams are compromised of what Microsoft Teams calls “channels.” Once your team is created, a default channel titled “General” will automatically appear on your team. Think of this as a general newsfeed or timeline for you and your team members. You can easily message and chat with team members in this main stream. You can also praise team members, share files and photos, and start instantaneous video meetings.

It may be important to add additional channels in your team. For example, maybe you have created a team for your department. But maybe you want more specific channels that only certain team members would be a part of (i.e., accounts payable, HR leaders, etc.). You can easily create as many additional channels as needed, adding only the necessary team members to each of those channels.
