  2. $group = New-Team -MailNickname "TestTeam" -displayname "Work force" -Visibility "private"
  3. Add-TeamUser -GroupId $group.GroupId -User "Akash@test.com"
  4. Add-TeamUser -GroupId $group.GroupId -User "Mia@test.com"
  5. New-TeamChannel -GroupId $group.GroupId -DisplayName "marketing"
  6. New-TeamChannel -GroupId $group.GroupId -DisplayName "Sales"
