General usage reminders

  • Anyone in the Team can see the content of the Channels unless they are set as a private channel
  • Chat is private between those who are using it
  • Meeting invites added to a Channel won't be emailed to all members, you need to add individuals when creating the Team invite. That's true even if you set the invite to a specific channel.
