Chat vs. Channel:

  • Chat is used to talk directly to one person, or a group within the team
  • Channel is used to talk about something that could be beneficial to anyone.
    • You can mention someone specifically by typing @ and their name, like @Hannah Duncan, or the whole team by typing @ and the name of your team, like @Hannah Duncan Test. This will notify them, so they will be more likely to see your post

Keyboard Shortcuts:

  • Show keyboard shortcuts: Ctrl + . 
  • Start a new line: Ctrl + Enter
  • Start a new video Call: Ctrl + Shift + U
