A channel is a place where a team or an individual can create threads in which to interact with Qbo and work towards a common goal. A channel can be a project, activity, or topic. It can be set to either private or public, based on the channel author’s need.
qbo is the default channel that is created when Qbo is installed. The qbo channel allows the user to have private conversations with the bot, and pose queries , get results, and boards. Multiple threads can be created or deleted in any channel.
To create a thread, see Create.
To delete a thread, see Delete
The qbo channel cannot be deleted, edited, or archived.
