Channels act as containers that store the pre-defined content types available in a digital workplace. 

Channels contain almost all content within a workplace. Before being able to create content, an Administrator must add Channels to a workplace. There is no limit on the number of Channels that can be added, and it is often beneficial to have multiple Channels of the same type within a workplace. These Channels can focus on different themes (company news, vs. team news), and can have the level of user access to them controlled independently. 

Displaying Channel contents

A Channel's content can be viewed by navigating to the Channel, or by creating a view into a Channel using Widgets. With Widgets, it is possible to display the content from multiple Channels of the same type in one location.
