What is a tab #
Teams are divided into channels, which are again divided into tabs. The tabs can be found at the top of the channel page directly below the channel name. Tabs are different tools that can be added to a channel. All channels have the tabs "Conversations" and "Files" by default. You can add your own tabs beyond these. This can for example be a single file, like a Word document or a Power Point presentation. With the wiki tool you can publish text content in an organized fashion.
Tabs and apps #
A tab can also be an app from a third party. There are many different apps to choose from and you can even download more apps from the app store. You can for example integrate a Microsoft Planner board in a tab to organize tasks.
Creating a new tab #
First enter the channel you want to create a tab in. You can see your existing tabs at the top of the page, and to the right of these; click the + sign. You should now see a pop-up window where you can select what type of tab you want to create. If you choose a document type like excel, word, pdf, etc., you simply select the file you want from the file area associated with the channel. This means you need to upload the file to the channel first. See Teams - Share files for more information.
Deleting a tab #
Tabs you have created can be deleted. To the right of the tab name, click the arrow ˅ and select Remove.
NB! For certain types of tabs like e.g. wiki, the underlying content will be deleted permanently if the tab is deleted.
