How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Guest access should be implemented at the Channel level

Once I enabled guest access on the tenant I can enable guest access to a team, but I can't give guest access to a single channel. There should be a way to do this as I will now need to create a guest team and an internal team when I share teams with customers.

    One can always control the granular permission to Teams channel files and folder through its SharePoint online document library. Till now, permission by channels is not available but Microsoft has it in their roadmap.

    This is highly important to us - having to create a new team for every single project in order to limit guest access is not how we want to use Teams. We have a Team for our team, with sub-channels for very project but we cannot grant guest access without giving it to all the channels.

    My team often collaborates with others within our organization on small projects - ideally we will use a channel to manage the information around that project. It would be very good to be able to grant access channel by channel.

    This would be great! If you have a project or department as a team, it makes sense to give guest access to a channel instead managing an internal and external team!

    Another vote for high granularity controls for Guest access. We need the ability to control specifically what guests can be added to as well as who can control guest access.

    yes, Guest access should have the highest granularity...
    Guest access at a Team level is not enough. We need it at the Channel level instead.

    Yes! Yes! Yes! More than 6 Months without an Update. Please update when this will be available. Having to create two Separate Teams, one for internal and one for external for each project is simply sad and not aligned with the Teams strategies. Please be consistent. Thanks.

    Yes, please make this feature available, else we have to create teams for every project where we want to add the guests, because by default all channels are available to the guest, make the option where guest can only have the ability to be a member of a specific channel so team members can communicate with him and provide updates.

    Please implement guest access at the Channel level. Now I need to create separate Team for each group of Guests. Ideally I would like to create the only one Team for all Guests and create separate Channel for each type of Guests.

    any updates on this, it feels like this is something that Slack has been good at since day one.

    We really need this option, as we are often working with 3rd parties on different, but related projects and cannot be setting an entire team just for the 3rd party to have limited access.
