You can frame the channels the way you want, based on your need.

4. Add Websites Tabs in every channel needed, you can bring any content that comes with a URL to the Team created. The content can be any information that you would like to share with your team members.

  • Guidelines on Internet or intranet
  • Link to a share-point online documentation library
  • Internal web-based application

5. Create a Planner with the list of tasks that you need to carry out. Few examples that can be:

  • Communication with CEO (Weekly dialogue, Communication Report and Communication)
