Support for Private Channels
Looking for the ability to create a channel that only channel members can see. Private channels are available in slack. There is an admin for private channels who is the creator, and they are the ones who add/remove users.
Five types of public/privacy that is being asked for by users:
- Public-Open (visible anywhere including outside the org and anyone can join)
- Public-Invitation (visible anywhere including outside the org, must be invited)
- Company-Open (only visible inside the org and anyone in the org can join; outside the org must be invited)
- Company-Invitation (only visible inside the org, must be invited)
- Secret (invisible to everyone except existing members, must be invited)
Hey Microsoft Teams users — I want you to weigh in on new features around channels and group chats. The engineering team and I have put together this survey to find out how you want to see channels improve. You can fill it out here: https://microsoft.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_esTxHdABLQxKLvn
And I’m still waiting on approval to get you a good update about Private Channels. I can say that we ARE working on it, fervently.
Hi, can we have an update please?
Please share more information with us! https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/36063967-share-more-information-with-us-please
STILL no update? Suphatra, are you here? Feels like this page is rather pointless. No update, no progress, no timeline - from all we know.
Pleeeeease could we get an update on this? When will it come and how will it work?
This is a blocker for our deployment and i need an update on when this will be in the product so i can plan this in, or we will need to use a different product
OK - you've had Christmas - we've had a ridiculous proliferation of separate team sites as a workaround for lack of private channels. This is dire
Private channels are essential
Private channels are essential otherwise is not really useful for companies
I believe there are more then enough companies looking for an update Microsoft!
MICROSOFT - Can you please provide an update on this? This is a critical need for larger companies and has been in these threads for almost a year. Decision is to be made for Cisco WebEx Teams vs. MS Teams, and right now it's WebEx Teams unless we can an update/date that MS has commited to.
private channels are essentiell, otherwise MS teams is useless for big companies

Hi, can we have an update please? We have planned our roll out of teams around having this feature and we have no idea of when it will be released.
Some communication please.

Hey guys, this is very important.... any update please?
While we have members of an overall MS Team we do not want all Members able to access all Channels. Main reason being security of files and confidentiality. Also, some Members just don't want to be part of all Channels. Only want to see what information is relevant to them. They may not be a part of that Channel groups work.
Please provide an update on this!
Can we have an update please?
We started using Teams 9 months ago based on the fact you were "working on it".
Can you tell me how long is left to "work on it"?
