How to create a Team

Follow the steps below to add a new Team. (If you are unable to add a new Team by following this guide, you may need additional permissions assigning. Please contact our help desk if this is the case).

1. From the Teams list, click Join or create a Team at the bottom then select the Create Team button.


2. Select Build a Team from scratch. (If you already have existing departmental Office 365 groups, you can also convert these to Teams by selecting the second option).


3. Select whether your Team needs to be a Private or Public team. Users must be invited to Private Teams. Public Teams can be joined by anyone in the organization.


4. Enter a Team name and description then click Create.


5. The new Team will appear in the Teams list on the left with the default General channel. To add members and additional channels, see our other guides on the left.
