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.

        Can we get an update on this. We really need this ability to switch visibility of individual channels on or off for guests (and maybe members)

        Hello, any update regarding this? Channel-based permissions should absolutely be a staple of Teams.

      • Elizabeth Romero commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Yes we really need this as well- usage is going to be low if everytime you are trying to work with a different set of folks then you have to create a new MS Teams- IT is going to be controlling creation of teams which defeats the purpose of having self service...it would be great if you created a Team for dept - top level and then channels underneath can be for different users- because right now it inherits from the top and all channels will have same members thanks, we really need this!!!!

        One more vote from me. This would make MS Teams much easier to work with as a client facing environment.

        I would like to add my support for this feature to be added. It would make things so much easier.

        Would appreciate an update on this requirement. Last update I can see is Sept'17

        I agree, right now we have to use Slack for our customer support chat on our website and we would much rather just use Teams...

        Any updates? This feature would be useful to have. Right now it is a determining factor to whether we use Teams.

        Hi Warren,

        Can you please provide an update on this? Is it in active development or ... ?

        I'm being asked to create a joint (MS Teams/Sharepoint) structure for this and because there's no merge function yet or other ability to move things around in teams, I need to know if I have to build individual teams or can use channel level permissions at any point in the near future.

        Thanks,
        Andrew

        So many internal projects my team run can be covered by a channel, but for each project there are stakeholders external to the team that need access - at the moment we have to create an entire new Team per project. Being able to invite non-Team members to participate in a Channel would be a huge win for us.

        Definitly a crucial feature for us to have!! Admin Access control on channel level is pre-requisite for us for a bigger rollout.

        This option will be great. Slack have this option when inviting members.Teams is a great product and this will add more options in using it.
