Which type of channel to Choose in Microsoft teams

Microsoft Teams offers a variety of channel types to choose from, each with its own set of features and benefits. In this blog post, we’ll explore the different channel types available and help you decide which one is right for your team.

Standard Channel A standard channel is accessible to everyone in the team. All members can read and edit conversations in the channel, making it a great option for general discussions and collaboration.

Shared Channel A shared channel is accessible within the organization and can also be shared with external users. However, the settings must be open in both the organization you share it with and the organization you are in. If external access is not allowed, you cannot use the shared channel to collaborate with external users. 

Private Channel A private channel is only accessible to specific people within the team. The owner of the channel has control over who has access, and if the owner leaves the company, only an admin can access the channel. Private channels also create a separate SharePoint site and have some limitations, such as not being able to add a planner app. For these reasons, it is recommended to use shared channels instead of private channels for better control and collaboration. 

In conclusion, Microsoft Teams offers a variety of channel types to suit different needs and levels of collaboration. Consider the needs of your team and organization when choosing the right channel type for you.
