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.

Read this article first if you haven't created a universal channel yet.

Finding the invite link

Step 1

At the bottom of any channel, find the "· · ·" and select Mio Universal Channels.

Step 2

You will be shown a window with your channel name, share link, and member list.

Copy and share this link with any external contact. You can also send a direct email invite to your contact's inbox without leaving Slack.

Your external contacts will be asked to install the app on their own chat platform, whether it's Slack, Microsoft Teams, 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.
