  2. Select the channels to host the shared content.

How content is published to Microsoft Teams

Your post must be published inside of EveryoneSocial for it to show up in Microsoft Teams. If it’s been submitted for approval to a Group, then a moderator or admin must approve the post before it’s published.

Once your post has been published, it will share to the Microsoft Teams channels you selected during the creation process. Moderators and admins can also push the content to Slack while editing and approving the post.

The post will display the profile image of the person who shared the post to Teams, then it will display the EveryoneSocial post inside of a container, where your team can interact with it.

🔸 You may see your image and name twice on the post in Microsoft Teams if you are the content creator inside of EveryoneSocial and the person sharing to Microsoft Teams.

Interacting with Microsoft Teams posts

Channel members in the Teams channel the post was shared have the option to Share or View the post.

Share the post

Share goes to the content page, where the post can be shared to a person’s social networks. The post needs to be shareable for this option to present.

If they click Share, they will be brought to the Public Post Page. A person can share the post to selected social networks without logging in to EveryoneSocial.

Users logged in to EveryoneSocial can share the content with all the sharing options presented for your team, such as scheduling the share for later.

View the post

View goes to the post in EveryoneSocial, where they can comment, share externally, or like the post. If they are not part of your Workspace, then the View option functions as a link to the Public Post Page.


I want to post to a channel but it’s not showing up in my Teams Channel list?

Teams Channels are pulled when you initially connect your Microsoft Teams account. If you’d like to post to a channel you joined or created after you connected Teams to your profile, you’ll need to disconnect your Teams account and reconnect it.

Can I edit a post sent to Microsoft Teams?

Absolutely! You can edit the post within EveryoneSocial by clicking the three dots menu > Edit post. Make the changes you need, then click Save.

If the post was already shared to Microsoft Teams, you’ll want to share that to Teams again for the edits to be displayed in Teams.

My Share and View buttons are missing. Why is that?
Microsoft Teams  has default parameters and, if a post is tall, then the Share and View buttons may appear within a "show more" link. You'll need to click that to access the Share and View options.
