Swimming Across the Channel!
Not the English Channel, but rather the Teams Channels! Dr. SharePoint here with another new tip straight form those cooky guys and gals over at Microsoft! Sometimes they announce something that is wonderful! This is one of those announcements, you can now cross post a message accross more then one channel all without copy / pasting!
You will soon be able to edit the content and channel distribution of a Microsoft Teams message after it has been posted. This will be gradually rolling this out the end of February 2020. The roll-out will be completed by mid-March. When using the Teams desktop app or Teams on the web, you will see an option to edit a message and change how it has been cross-posted.
- Edit content: edit the message content and that change will cascade to all selected teams and channels.
- Add a new channel: a user can add new channels for an existing channel message, including those messages that were not cross-posted initially.
- Remove a channel (recall): a user can also remove the message from a channel that she had initially selected.
Note: Sad to say, but this feature does not apply to mobile. At least not yet!
