Allow adding Guest to specific Channels
allow adding Guest only to specific Channels within a team. example, you may have an outside vendor that may need to collaborate on a team but should not have access or visibility to the other channels/files/tabs etc.
This feature would help create less teams.
I have way too maaaannnnnyyyy teams I am a member of.
Today, for simple collaboration/projects we are creating new teams in order to contain the information within the project members. Being able to assign channel specific guests would help have a more rational creation of teams and channels.
I am a strong believer that many teams created today would be perfect candidates for a channel in an already existing team, if only we could invite guests to those individual channels.

From the perspective of departments in large companies who work with other departments (e.g. IT, Finance, HR etc) the ability to add guests from other departments within the company to a channel within a Departmental Team would be extremely uesful. This would provide less data sprawl than the existing requirement to create a new Team and avoid having to add extra members to the Team just to give them file access for oversight.

for our team this is also a crucial feature. We started implementing teams, but originally come from "basecamp". There you can specify which files and areas are visible for the client and those files are highlighted very clearly for you, so there is no mistake, that the client can see them.
Otherwise it takes a lot of effort to plan in advance which parts (channels) of the team should be hidden later on, if we decide to invite clients at a later point in time, since the "general" is always visible to everyone.

Please add this feature it is critical in cross functional work groups- which is common in almost all organizations.
definitely! Already duplicated in another suggestion though.

The admins for each channel should be able to control a rich set permissions including posting rights, joining rights, etc. globally, on a per-channel, and a per-user basis.
