Create tags in Teams

A tag is a function that divides a team into smaller groups. This is useful when you want to be able to tag a small group instead of an entire team or to control the groups permissions.

Create a tag in your team

  1. Go to your team and click on the three dots to the right of the teams name.
  2. Select Manage tags.
  3. A new tab will appear, select Create tag.
  4. Choose a name for the tag and who it should include. Select Create.
  5. Your tag is now created! You can use the tag to make a @mention or select a specific group to moderate a specific channel.
  6. If you as the owner want to control who can create and manage tags, you will find this under Manage teams and Settings.

Some ways to use tags

  • You can easily create a group chat based on tags instead of inviting the members one at a time.
  • Instead of @mentioning the whole team or the specific channel you can @mention the specific tag. That way, the people included in the tag gets an extra notification. This can reduce irritation it you use @mentions frequently.
  • You can control who is allowed to publish in channels based on tags.
