Tabs let you highlight the apps, services, and files your team cares about right at the top of a channel, so everyone in your team can get to them.

Every channel comes with three tabs by default:

  • Conversations - where your team posts messages and replies, holds meetings, and shares files.

  • Files - helps your team store, find, and co-edit all the documents that have been uploaded to that channel.
