A chat is a conversation between two or more people. Messages and files shared in a chat will not be accessible to anyone outside of the chat, similar to how emails are only sent to the recipients entered in the To field. Use chat to message your co-workers, boss, students, or friends around campus. Start a group chat for quick conversations or questions.
Standard channels are visible to all members of the team. Private channels, indicated by a lock, are only visible to specific people within the team.
PINs are needed if you are the meeting organizer and are dialing into the meeting yourself. You do not need a PIN if you are using a Teams mobile app, web browser or desktop client.
In the meeting invite, as the Meeting Organizer, click the Reset PIN link under the Phone Conference ID number.
