Announcements posting accross various teams and channels
Ability to post message across multiple Teams/Channels in one go. E.g. Posting a "announcement" in multiple channels
Yes this would be perfect! The same way we can assign an assignment to multiple Teams (classes) at once.
While I know you can email various channels to effectively post to multiple teams, it would be great if this was a more sophisticated mechanism run through Teams; as its clunky in Outlook, hard to customise the look of the post, and misleading for people who when 'download' the email even though you'd always intended it to be a post not an email.
We also have a requirement, where it would be great to have messages and updates mentioned in one channel, automatically populated to another channel/s of choice!

What i would LOVE to see is a SINGLE post that you can tag to multiple channels.
The post could then be displayed on all the channels, but it's still just the one post.
It's important that it is only a single post though (and not manually posting new posts with links to other posts, or duplicating the post in multiple places) to avoid fragmentation when people respond.
If it shows up on multiple channels, and anyone interacts with it, all those interactions show in all "copies" of the post regardless of which channel's "copy" i saw and responded to.
Discourse does a really good job of this with how you can have, inside a thread, a virtual link to another part in the thread, or another post somewhere else.
This would be super valuable to have conversations between teams which you are not a member. One feature really missing from Teams is the ability to have a discussion take place between two separate teams.

Yes! This needs to be done. We have multiple departments and would need to communicate to those teams and dept. With no use of private channels yet- i need to be able to send a company wide alert or a location wide alert so that all are in the loop if there would be outages. This would save a lot of time
I like this idea, but I'm thinking on a larger scale of a company wide announcement, to everyone within your Office 365 organisation. Would be really useful for certain things that need to be seen by all members of staff.
