Hello, 

 

When creating a Microsoft Teams chat it says enter name, email or tag. When I try and use the @tag of a channel, team or custom tag in a Team nothing appears. How do you create Tags for chats?

Looks there is this user voice, but why have the tag option in the Chat To: field?

@adam deltinger  Hi Adam, isn't that for Teams and Channels though, not for Chats?

I have created custom tags in a Team, but can't use these when starting a Chat, for example

Don't worry found it in here https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/office/using-tags-in-teams-667bd56f-32b8-4118-9a0b-56807c96d91e?...

 

you don't need to put @ and have to type the full name of the Tag or Team for example
