  • How to have a private conversation with Teams

    Microsoft Teams is a chat-centered workspace in Office 365 that’s a hub for teamwork. It’s extensible and customizable, so you can tailor it for the information your team needs. Microsoft Teams supports flexible communication, including chats, calls, meetings, and private and group conversations.

     

    Open team channels are great for collaboration,  but sometimes you need to talk privately.

    You can do that here. In Chat, you can have private one-on-one or group conversations that are not in the public team channel.
