Message Access to channel and File Access should be restricted to few among many members of the Team.
A team has been created with 100 members. would like to have a channel restricted to only 3 members. another channel restricted to 10 members. and all these channels under same team. files shared among channel should be made available to view to those users granted access to the channel and not for all members of the team.

Currently one of the major bugbears of a Teams deployment amongst the business - having numerous disparate and varied Teams that are required because you can only set access on the Team level, not the Channel level.
If I could say the Sales department have access to The Sales Team, but Only Export can see Channel 1, only Domestic can see Channel 2, but both can see Channel 3, with Channel 4 being for senior sales staff, I've saved the creation of 4 Teams which all have the same basic function but due to restriction constraints must exist.

It's a useful feature but if all members do not have access to all team content it needs to be clearly visible which team sub-group you are part of & which access level is assigned. Hence the team owner should be allowed for each sub-group to comment the scope and purpose of access level. This feature would go well with another proposed improvement, adding sub channels for channels. Which would also greatly reduce the number of teams needed

This is important to avoid increased number teams and would help to organize activity in much better way if we can restriction the members to a specific channel under one team.
This would be incredibly useful to use with my local department as well as international departments! This would enable to use Teams more globally while still keeping certain documents within my team.
I have the same issue! It would be really useful to be able to discuss some topics in the general part of teams and then more specific ones in channels with restricted access!
It would be fantastic to allow that!!
I like this idea, in fact we are facing the same problem, needing a channel restriction to some channels within the same teams group. For example, having a teams Channel that needs to have 5 members, and another channel that needs to have another 5 members, but one channel can't have access to the other channel and its files.
