Microsoft Teams - Navigation in Teams
From Katrina Boone
When you launch the Teams app, you will arrive at your Teams dashboard. The center of your screen will contain white tiles with various icons. Each icon represents a Team to which you belong. These may be Teams that you have created, or Teams that you have been added by another person.
Once you select a Team, you enter that Team's workspace. This workspace is divided into two primary areas: a "Me Space" and a "We Space." In the "Me Space," you will find notifications about your recent activity, private chats, teams, assignments, meetings, files and apps. We think of this navigation bar as the "Me Space" because it contains controls and notifications specifically for you.
The "We Space" is meant for collaboration. The main part of the dashboard is where conversations take place with students or colleagues. It is also the place to share files, assignments, shared documents, and notes. There are many ways to customize the Team, and that starts with adding channels.
Channels are just another way to divide different aspects of your Team into categories, such as units of study, professional topics, themes, agenda items, etc. The ability to personalize your workspace is one of the most useful features of Teams.
