Add groups as member to private channels
A brief use case would be;
We have a Team that contains all staff members by default, the general channel is set to only owners can post. Currently we have separate teams for other internal departments which can get messy and cause notification fatigue.
We want to make use of private channels but to set access to the channels dynamically using existing groups. For example, under the internal staff team we have a private channel for Sales. In Azure AD we have a group called Sales with a membership rule of "if dept = sales". We would like to add this as a member to the channel so that the channel is updated as part of the JML process.

I agree, this is a needed feature. If I make an org-wide Team and then want to have a private channel target a specific group, my only option to add members individually. Its a pain to enter members one by one if the dist groups are large.
