Convert Private Channel to Public Channel
Its good that Private channels are introduced in MS Teams. Can we have a option to convert a private channel to public channel.
Thanks & Regards,
Thank you for your feedback! The team has reviewed this request and has added it to our backlog for both Private to Standard (Public) and Standard (Public) to Private channel conversion. We will share an update as soon as it’s available.

need to convert from private to public and back again
We need this too
We need the option to change channel from public to privat and vice versa.
And the other way around as well please. Thanks!
Please allow a channel to switch between private and public or allow Apps like Planner to work in a private channel.
This is a must have - as others have said, how could private channels have been introduced without the key ability to change from Private to Public and vice versa?
Please MS, implement this quickly!
Note there is a second "idea" with the same request here: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/38974249-make-public-channel-private
Why do they always miss key functionality like this?! You can create a public channel, a private channel but can't change between them?!
What if we had a public channel that needed locking down one day?

This feature is essential to make Teams a useful platform for project management and prevent us froms creating a new team for each project...
... or at least force-delete already deleted channels so we can reuse the name earlier again?
Please add this feature.
Agree. we need to have that feature
Our Company is pushing us to use Teams but I think it is still "not mature" ! One of the many issues is the fact now Channels can be created as Private but I have many now to convert..and I can't !

Wow, I can't believe I had to Google this to find this isn't an option. I am trying to create channels for projects and am left with Private channels that do not function with Planner. To make things more challenging, I can't reuse the channel name if I delete them. This is frustrating. :(

This is, as Microsoft Support folks used to like to say so often during the rollout of NT, a "NO BRAINER"
Please do, this feature would be very useful

Vice versa, please.

Can Microsoft please put this on the road map and tell users when this will be available. Its a real shame this has not been fixed already
Roeland Verhoeven commented
Yes, because not all apps (like Planner) is available for private channels

...and vice versa.
