    • Private Team: In the list of all teams, any user can see the name of this team, but not the feed. Messages in private teams do not appear on the Company Feed.

      When Private Team is selected, the Show this team for anyone to find and request to join check box is displayed. Select this check box to allow any user to search for this team and request to join it. Clear the check box to allow only invited users to see the feed and join the team.

    Note: A team administrator can create one or more group feeds specifically for the members of this team by clicking the Group Feeds tab and Create Group Feed. Additionally, the team can be invited to join a feed. Having multiple feeds for the team facilitates focused discussions on topics of interest to the team and allows the team to selectively invite other teams and members to collaborate on specific feeds.
