hard delete deleted channels
is there any way of "hard" deleting, deleted channels?
i've did some testing regarding the 200 channel limit, now i can't create new channels, as still the limit is reached because the test channels are still under deleted channels….
workaround, restore the deleted channel. edit it, rename it, delete it again, then you can create a new channel with the old ones name
hi - this is ridiculous - as there is a limit to the number of private channels I wanted to merge some of them - I am not able to rename sharepoint folder to match the updated teams name. I am not able to delete the channel and it still counts towards my limit) - really basic design flaws that make this horrible to use
amazing there is no way to instantly delete them

This crumbled our plans today since we could not remove deleted channels. This is the first thing I could not deleted from a Power shell command that I've tried. Seems odd a global admin can't even remove deleted things.

We hit this snag today and without a hard delete the only option was to create another team so they could continue making channels.
My company is rolling out office 365 and have chosen to adopt Teams. We have discussed the permanent deletion of channels in teams with several Microsoft reps. They have all advised us to set a retention policy through our admin portal. This isn’t the option we are looking for. It says we can set retention policies for Teams Chat Messages or Channel Messages. I’m looking to permanently delete a deleted channel within a team.
We’ve deleted some channels and moved them to a secondary team due to the limit of 200 channels, however the deleted channels are still counting against our limit and we are unable to continue creating new channels for collaboration at this time.
Now our staff are unable to proceed with their work! If I can’t find a solution to this issue immediately I’m going to have users abandoning this software very quickly!

Agree it suggest that maybe we need to look at alternatives team like Slack if there too many limitations
No reason why they couldn’t be deleted, just ridiculous they can’t

As I've said elsewhere, why is there a limit at all? This kind of thing only arises because of the existence of arbitrary limits in the app.
