In Microsoft Teams, you can invite others to chat with you by sharing the link that the bot generates after you create your universal channel.

Note: These steps work for existing channels as well, as long as the channel is in a team where the Mio Universal Channels is installed.

Create a regular channel and convert it to a universal channel 

Step 1

Find the "· · ·" of any team that has the Mio Universal Channels app and choose Add channel.

Step 2

At the bottom your channel, find the "· · ·" and select Mio Universal Channels

Step 3

Choose the first option, Convert and invite.

Sharing the invite link

Step 2

After converting a new or existing channel to a universal channel, the Mio Universal Channels bot will send you a message similar to this one in that channel.

Step 3

Copy the link and send it to anyone you want to invite. They can join the channel through that link regardless if they're using Slack or Webex Teams.

Do other Microsoft Teams users need to join from that link as well? 

If your colleagues are in the same Microsoft Teams organization as you, you can invite them to your universal channel as you normally would in a regular space.

In the universal channel you want to add people to, click to "· · ·" next to the channel name. Then select Add member.

Then type in the person's name or username, and click Add.
