Name of your new team in Microsoft Teams

“Team” is the name for an official collaborative group in Microsoft Teams set up for working groups, departments or projects. Each team has their own SharePoint file space and tools to enable collaboration, communication and coordination and has their own email address. 

Within the team you will have channels for sub-teams, for services the team is responsible for, or for topics. The channels aren’t private so all team users can see each channel within a team.

Naming convention

For readability it's best to keep the names short and use the description field for context and clarity. Names can have no more than 60 characters. All should have dashes
