Member Permissions for Channels
Request #1: Currently, as shown in that attachment, permissions can only be changed for the general channel. Allow these settings to be changed for each channel.
Request #2: Add an addition option where "Only owners can start a new conversation, but anyone can reply". Example use: Only a manager could post an announcement, but everyone could reply to that comment.

We would love to use this functionality for an "Announcements" channel or a bulletin board of sorts. Only the owners would be able to post announcements and members would only be able to view.

I have created a new request for #2 here (#1 is no longer applicable as Microsoft has added other options for channels): https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/38885296-separate-permission-to-start-conversation-and-repl

I echo both of these sentiments. I think the best version would be either:
1. Have all other channels inherit the permissions from the General Channel (not idea, but should be easy to implement)
2. Have each owner-created channel create a Permissions section with the same controls as the General channel (more difficult to implement, but the best solution, in my opinion)
