Option to Show All Channels for a Team
It would be nice if you had an option to see all channels for the Team you are currently browsing. It seems to limit showing of 6 channels and then a "X more channel" option where you can then see the remaining channels when you click on it.
Having users click to show the channels is not helpful - we have 133 people in the channel, and not are tech savvy. Further, if it's a hidden channel, they don't get any notifications so they don't know to go find it!

While I get your suggestions, in case you are not aware you can "Pin" each channel and then they will all be at the top and also will all be visible under the Team group. Then you can either minimize the pinned and use the Team seeing all channels (if they fit), or use the pinned to see all channels. See the attached pdf of our Teams navigation only showing one Team. However, whenever a new channel is created you need to Pin it for it to populate. I think it makes sense that a user can select which channels they want to see unless the administrator is perfect at assigning users to groups and assigning groups - unlikely right :) Maybe it should have been designed differently, but this works great for us. Then of course you can grad and drop the channels and put in whatever order you want. In the attached pdf, the left snapshot is the top Pinned, and right snapshot is the Team view after Pinning.

show all by default with the ability to hide would be wayyyyy better than hide everything and allow me to show them one-by-one. I am a member of a team with about thirty channels, for everyone new who joins, having to unhide one-by-one is a real pain for them.
i don't know why you have to let me click show all channel,
every time if i didn't click, i can't know if there ware any update!
i hope i can choose to show all or hide it.

I don't understand the thought process that made the "x see more channels>" as the normal behavior. every other program that has a tree structure on the left has the ability to expand that tree and leave it expanded. file explorer, slack and outlook are 3 examples i can think of right off the top. even if there was an option to allow us to tell teams to expand all that would be fine. but to roll them up and not make it expandable at all... that's just dumb.

You can mark the channels as favourites and they will show under the team
YES. I have no idea what were they thinking. Collapse the channels just if there are no more space for them! It looks really funny when I have 4k screen and can only view 3 channels at time and what seems to be an endless space of pure space after that.
I agree - but I only see 3 channels per Team and then it collapses.
This is a problem because we don't get notifications for activity unless someone @you or we somehow notices the bold text channel name for unread messages... which gets hidden when channels are collapsed.
It makes more sense to scroll to see channels rather than have to expand them.
Absolutely Agree - this would be a great feature. My work team has 14 channels, and 8 are hidden - I am missing new additions to the conversation as a result.
Please add this functionality!

Please god yes
It's annoying to have to click on the 'x more channels' all the time when the space is available to show all

Please let us expand a Team to show all the available channels instead of hiding them in "x more channels". Why should we be limited?
This would be great. I currently have a huge amount of white space below the "X more channels" button. All the channels would easily fit for me if it were possible to expand them.
