Do we have, or do we need to have, all Sparrow channels?
Sparrow channels can be customized to needs of your organization. Your organization doesn’t need to deploy all channels and this decision can change over time.
If you are an employee, contact your administrator to learn which channels are available to your organization.
If you an administrator, ask your Account Manager or Sparrow Contact to learn which channels are, and can be, available to your organization.
I am seeing things differently on my screen. What does that mean?
While all Sparrow channels have the same functionality, their design aligns with the channel's specifications and with your organization's branding.
Take note! The examples provided on the video are from Flightward, a fictional company. Each organization brands their MS Teams plug-in, Mobile App, and Intranet differently.
Each channel has been built to integrate with the underlying platform natively and seamlessly. Features and buttons may have different locations to better fit your screen size. However, it will all behave the same way once published and/or interacted with.
