To see what a Team is about, ie. the Team description

- I go to the ellipses "..." click View Team

- and here I can read the description, but it gets truncated...basically I can't read the whole description

If I'm the owner of that Team, I will see an additional selection - click Edit Team

- here I can read the whole description, I can even edit it

 

So my question is - how does a member read the whole description of a Team?

 

 

To see what a Channel is about, ie. the Channel description

- I go to the ellipses "..." click View Team>click the Channels tab

- and here I can read the description, but it gets truncated...basically I can't read the whole description

Turns out, even as a member of a Team I can see an additional selection - Edit this Channel

- here I can read the whole description, I can even edit it

 

So my question is - are non-channel creators supposed to be able to edit the channel name and description?

 

And if not, which other way can a member read the whole description of a channel without having access to edit it?
