Microsoft Teams' New Cross Channel Posting Feature

New Feature for Microsoft Teams 

All end-users will soon be able to edit the content and channel distribution of a Microsoft Teams message after it has been posted. This feature does not apply to mobile.
Microsoft will be gradually rolling this out at the end of February 2020 with the completion sometime around March 15, 2020.

When using the Teams desktop app or Teams on the web, your users will see an option to edit a message and change how it has been cross-posted. 

  • Edit content: edit the message content and that change will cascade to all selected teams and channels. 
  • Add a new channel: a user can add new channels for an existing channel message, including those messages that were not cross-posted initially. 
  • Remove a channel (recall): a user can also remove the message from a channel that she had initially selected.
