Change an existing Channel's privacy option in a Team.
Please can we be able to change the privacy of an existing channel within a team rather than just new channels that are created.
I cant understand why i cant make a channel private if im the owner...does not make any sense to me.
Create your new channel, make it Private, Edit your Channel neme, You can move your files, (10) at a time, to the newly created Private Channel. Wish I had a fix for the "post" History, other than not deleting the old channel for a historical record.
This process is slow but its worth it !
We let the business loose on Teams 2 days ago and have already fielded 5 calls about users wanting to convert public channels into Private channels. This is no almost a no brainer. This IS a no brainer. Microsoft have really dropped the ball on channels in general. Channels should have always been document libraries instead of folders.
Yes this is almost a no brainer if you are the owner of a channel or team you should be able to make the channel private and change it to public. Shocking Microsoft would not set it up this way to start !
I need this instead of having to delete and recreate channels, please add feature

This would be an interesting possibility, UP!

This would be sooo awesome
So glad we finally got the option to create a private channel, but all of our existing channels are still public. It would be really beneficial to be able to make an existing channel private rather than deleting the channel and creating a new one. Deleting a channel means we lose any previous chat posts which of course can be great history to keep alive.
