Microsoft Teams has plenty of interesting features that makes team collaboration as easy as a walk in the park. In this quick guide, we’re going to talk about the Wiki tab. We’ll take a quick look at its main role. And we’ll offer you some tips and tricks to help you take advantage of this cool feature.
What is the Wiki Tab in Teams?
The Wiki tab is a smart-text editor that allows multiple users to work on different sections of the same document. Users can edit the document, insert comments and chat all in one place. You can add multiple Wiki tabs to the same channel.
How Do You Add a Wiki Tab in Microsoft Teams?

- Type ‘wiki‘ in the search bar.
- Select the Wiki tab and add it to your team channel.
Writing Content on the Wiki Tab
Think of the Wiki tab as Microsoft Teams’ built-in text editor. Just like any text editor, you can format your text, use headings to separate your ideas, highlight the main points, and so on.
A Wiki tab document is divided into multiple sections. You can insert as many sections as you want.
Keep in mind that only one user can edit a specific section at a given time. In other words, no two users can edit the same section simultaneously. But everyone can see what other users wrote in the document.
You can move sections up and down depending on your editing needs. And you can also link to different sections in your document. As you add more sections, Teams automatically updates the table of contents.
You can also start section-specific conversations. Simply hover your mouse over the section you’re interested in and click on Show section conversation.
In the conversation section, you can use @mentions to get your colleagues’ attention. They’ll receive a notification, and if they click on it, Teams will take them directly to the Wiki tab.
To conclude, the Wiki tab is an excellent collaboration and productivity tool that brings team members closer together. Everybody has full visibility over the document the team is working on.
