Microsoft Teams Vol.3 tips & tricks
Keep communication fuss free—Title your chats
When the channel is busy, using a subject line can help your topic stand out.
Adding a subject to your conversation is easy. Just click the button to expand the compose box (it looks like an "A" with a pen) and enter your subject text in the Subject line. Type your message and press Enter to post your new conversation.
Conversations in channels can be seen and searched for by the entire team. You can participate in conversations, like or save important ones, mention specific people so they see your message, and even edit a file that’s been added to the conversation.
Reply to a message
- Select Reply, add your response, and press Enter.
Like or save a message

Get someone's attention in the channel
- Type in front of a team member’s name while you're creating a message to include them in the conversation. The person will receive an @mention notice. You can @mention a team or channel, if your admin enables it.
