What is a Wiki tab?

The Wiki tab is a smart-text editor that doubles as a communication machine where you draft, edit, and chat all in one place. Open a Wiki tab so you can collaborate quickly and easily. Draft documents, track notes, share ideas, edit, and chat all in one place.

Create a Wiki tab

Wiki tabs are a great way to post content and communicate with your channel teams. Create multiple Wiki tabs for different discussions and focuses within your team.

To add a Wiki tab to your team:

  1. Open Microsoft Teams and select your channel team in Teams.

  2. Select Add a tab Add button next to the other tab names in the channel.

  3. Select Wiki from the tab gallery.

  4. Name the tab and start writing.

Write content for your Wiki tab

A Wiki tab comes with all the usual formatting options, such as bold, italic, and underlined text, highlighting, headers, and lists.

Every document in your Wiki tab is called a page and every page is made of different sections. To get started, give your page a title and then start authoring sections. Any time you want to add a new section, just hover over the left side of the page and select Add a new section here.

On the left side of your screen, you'll see a table of contents. This helps you navigate quickly between pages or even do some organizing.

Note: A standard channel’s Wiki tab can be accessed by anyone on your team. A private channel’s Wiki tab is accessible only by members of that channel.

Chat from your Wiki tab

@mention someone in a section

To talk with a teammate about a page, @mention them in a section. This comes in handy when you want feedback or you're waiting on someone else to contribute a section to your page. Once you @mention someone, they'll receive a notification in their Activity feed. Selecting the notification takes them directly to the section that needs their attention.

Start a chat in a section

If commenting directly in a section isn't your style, you can always start a conversation in the tab itself by selecting Show section conversation to the right of a section. From there, you can post questions, leave comments, or @mention your teammates. You'll have all the same formatting and attachment options that you do in your regular compose box.

If someone else has already left comments in the tab conversation, you'll be able to view them in the channel. You'll also know that someone has left comments in your Wiki tab because Show section conversation appears at the top of your page.
