Using custom Tags with Microsoft Teams

2020-03-05 1 min read Microsoft Teams

With tags, you can categorize people based on attributes, such as role, project, skill, training, or location. For example, a “Project member” or “Manager” or Customer (guests)" tag will enable you to reach groups of people in Teams without having to type every single name.

Once the tag is added, just use “@mention” in a channel. Everyone who has been assigned with the specific tag will receive a notification just as they would if they were “@mentioned” individually.

NOTE: Tags are not yet supported in private channels.

Manage tags settings for a team

By Default team owners can set whether members can add tags at the team level. To do this, on the Settings tab for a team, go to Tags, and then choose who can add tags.
