By default, every team gets a General channel, which is a good channel to use for announcements and information the whole team needs. To add more:
- Select ... (ellipses) More options next to the team name.
- Select Add channel.
- Enter a name and description for your channel. You can build a channel around a topic, project, department name, or whatever you like.
- Select Standard if you would like your entire Team to view the channel, or Private if the channel will only be available to a few members (more detail in another article)
- Select Automatically favorite this channel for the whole team if you want this channel to be automatically visible in everyone's channel list.
- Select Add.
- The new channel will appear in your channel list
