Watch a gif of creating a channel, or you can follow the steps below:
In your Slack sidebar under Apps, find the Mio Universal Channels Bot.
In a direct message, type and send /mio create.
A window will pop up where you can type in your desired channel name—50 characters max, no spaces or capitalization.
Select New Slack Channel. Type in the channel name. Select if you want the channel to be public or private, and select Create.
That was easy! You have successfully created a channel.
Copy the link and share it with external contacts who use Microsoft Teams and Webex Teams. Now you can all stay in your preferred chat app, but work together in a universal channel.
