Channel conversations are organized by date and then threaded. The replies in threads are organized under the initial post so it's easier to follow multiple conversations.
Find the conversation thread you want to reply to.
Click Reply, add your message, and click Send
C. Collaborate in Teams By using @mention
An @mention is like a tap on the shoulder — a way to get someone's attention in a channel conversation or a chat.
In the box where you type your message, type @, then type the first few letters of the person’s name. You can also @mention entire teams and channels.
Select the person. Repeat for as many people as you want to @mention.
Each person you @mention gets a notification in their Activity feed. Check for a red circle next to Activity right now to see if someone has @mentioned you!
D. Stay on top of Notifications
Notifications let you know when someone @mentions you, likes something you’ve posted, or replies to a thread you started. The Activity feed helps you stay on top of all your notifications.
Click Activity .
Feed shows you a summary of everything that's happened in the channels you follow.
Click Filter to show only certain types of notifications such as @mentions or reactions.
Select Feed > My Activity to see a list of everything you've been up to lately in Teams.
