Post a Conversation to Multiple Teams at Once

Cross Chanel Conversation

Do you have multiple sections of the same class? Yeah, I figured you probably did.

Prior to last week, if you wanted to get the word out in Teams about a topic relevant to more than one Team, you had to do the hard labor (and let’s be honest it was really hard work) of copying and pasting that message into each Team.

Now, you don’t have to, thanks to a new feature that allows you to post to multiple channels (and Teams.)

So, when next time when you want to remind your students to bring their copy of Romeo and Juliet, you can do so from one place. Read about how below.

A couple of caveats though.

Right now you can’t attach documents and files to the post and you have to choose to post to multiple channels before posting (no going back and clicking send to all.)

Cross post a channel conversation in Teams

Hey, do you have information or an announcement that needs to be shared across multiple teams and channels? Well, you can post that message to multiple channels at once.

To cross post a channel conversation:

  1. In the channel, select Format  Format button in Teams under the box where you type your message.
  2. At the top of the box that opens, choose a message type: New conversation or Announcement.
  3. Select Post to multiple channels > Select channels.

    Post a conversation or announcement to multiple channels.

  4. Choose the channels to post in or use search to find a channel. You can post wherever you’re a member.

    Choose channels to post a message in Teams.

  5. Select Update. The To field updates and shows the channels to post in.

    Your message is sent to the selected channels.

  6. Type your message and select Send Send a message icon. . This posts your message to the selected channels.
