Why are channels useful?
Mainly because Channels inherit their membership from their parent team.
This is cool for a few reasons.
- When someone new joins your Team, they automatically see all the Teams channels
- You can leave and rejoin Channels at any time, so if you're not working on a project for a while, jump out of the conversation
- As long as you remain a member of the team you can rejoin a team
- Search still returns results from Channels you have left and you can still read the channel without being in it.
Channels can be found by clicking on the Teams tab on the Directory button in the Blink menu.
