Channels are the best place to collaborate in Teams, and we’ve introduced some changes that will make it easier for you and your teammates to work together. The new channels experience provides an organized and transparent way to share content and have engaging conversations.

Flip the order of your channel posts

Now you can have your recent activity appear at the top (or the bottom) of your posts list. Select More channel options ... > See new posts at top to change the order of your channel posts and scroll down to see the rest.

New channel posts will appear at the bottom of the Posts tab by default, and if you flip the order of your channel posts to sort from the top, look to the top of the channel to start a post or make an announcement.
