Configure tabs in the Totara app for Microsoft Teams


In the Totara app you can add configurable tabs to a Team, allowing you to share content in different ways. Microsoft Teams allows for the tabs in Team channels to be added or removed by its members. In the Totara app, users can add learning content within these tabs to 'pin' content to certain channels. This could be a course administrator or facilitator who wants to flag pre-course material for a team by adding this course as a new tab, or a manager who wants to pin a playlist with useful resources for their team to use. To add a configurable tab, follow these steps:

  1. Click the plus icon (+) in the top panel within a Team.
  2. Find and select the Totara app from the list of available apps.
  3. Click Add.

Adding a custom tab in the MS Teams Totara app.

You will now be able to search the catalogue to find and select the item you would like to add in a tab. You can also provide a name for this new tab. Once it has been added, it will display to all users within that tab. You can also rename or remove the tab at any time by clicking the down arrow next to the tab name.
