How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Ability to archive channels

Would be nice if we had the ability to archive channels. For example: we created a channel for a specific project. Once the project is complete, we can archive that channel or at least move it out of the primary view. I could see the channel list getting large and clunky quickly with multiple projects many of which are complete.

Also, when a conversation in the channel is complete it should be archived or hidden.

    Unfortunately due to re-prioritization this item has slipped back onto the “backlog” for the time being.

    I hope to see it move back into “working on it” soon and will continue to engage the feature team with your feedback.

        We need this, We have a channel for each marketing campaign and it is becoming unmanageable with 2018 campaigns still in the list.

        We need this. Just started using teams and simply cannot believe with a 20 channel limit per team that you cannot archive a channel. Unbelievable

        So you can archive a Team, but not a Channel. Flummoxed as to why it's not available the other way around - you move a Channel into an Archive Team. Are we meant to use a gazzilion Teams to get the result we desire?

        It'd be great if this were able to become a priority feature. I agree with others, the lack of ability to archive causes workflow issues that force us away from Teams.

        Please implement this asap. The inability to archive conversations is holding us back from utilising Teams properly.

        Hard to think of anything that has priority over this feature. Not being able to archive makes Teams unfit for purpose.

        I would like to join everyone else in saying that this is a must have. Please put some time into this, the number of unused channels in a team can ultimately grow out of control and no one should have to delete them losing valuable work.

        Would really like to see this feature added; will greatly enhance the user experience to de-clutter things.
