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, a workplace 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 digital 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.
