Channels (Team Chat)
Channels are a team chat feature which allow internal groups and teams of users to communicate in real-time via chat messages and file shares. A channel can be created for any topic, project, function, groups, or any other reason for communicating to multiple people simultaneously.
The mechanics of Channel chat are very similar to one-on-one chat sessions, you may refer to the dedicated section on Chat for further details on specific chat mechanics. Messages and files posted within the Channel appear in the Channel Content Thread in chronological order. You may download any file posted to the thread by clicking the file's accompanying download link, downloaded files are accessible via the My Files menu.
The Channel Actions︙ button will reveal a tabbed window that allows you to toggle between a list of the Channel Members and the files shared within the channel.
This Files tab within a Channel differs from the Files page accessible from the top navigation toolbar, this Channel Files tab details files shared within the specific Channel. Once a user shares a file within a channel that file will remain within the Files tab for reference or access in the future. Clicking on the Files tab will provide a list of those shared files within the Channel and allow you to download any file shared.
Searching within a Channel's history is identical to search within a one-on-one chat with the only primary difference being you are searching through a Channel with messages and files from multiple users instead of just two. You may refer to the section on Chat Search for further detail on searching within a chat.
