How to create a "team"
All employees can create a team in Office 365.
Teams allows people to hold meetings both within and outside of the organisation. A meeting can include audio, video and file sharing. You can also invite people without a Teams account to a meeting in Teams.

A team can consist of several channels. A channel within a team can be dedicated to a certain area, field or project. All members of a team can create a channel in the team.
Overview of teams and channels
Consider and define the purpose before starting a team or channel. It must be clear to all members of the group what the collaboration aims to achieve.
The name of the team or channel must describe the collaboration well. Avoid acronyms and generic names that are not descriptive enough.
