Teams Real Simple with Pictures – Controlling who can edit documents in a Channel

Document collaboration and co-authoring (when we work at the same time) is one of the core functionalities of Teams. We have the ability to do this seamlessly whether it is our Word Documents, or Excel Spreadsheets, or PowerPoint presentations, knowing that they are stored in a single place and are accessible from anywhere on any device. However, there may be times where there is a single owner for the Teams documents or we simply need to create documents for viewing purposes only, limiting other members of our team from making changes. Controlling documents in channels and who can edit them is very straightforward, and many issues resulting from unauthorized changes can be easily prevented
