Allow Channel Moderation for General Channel
Channel moderation feature was introduced in 2019 allowing owners to chose if they want Members to reply on a post or not.
This is a very useful feature and is missing for general channel. Could you please extend this feature for general Channel as well ?

It's ridiculous that the General channel has less moderation than any of the other channels. For my class team, I want to use the General channel for announcements only, and not have it cluttered with replies and discussions under. Assignments now get posted automatically and there is no way to turn off replies. Please re-enable the feature whereby only owners and moderators can post and reply in General.
We really need this so that everyone that should post doesnt need to be an owner
Our school also need channel moderation abilities at General channel ASAP! Please, help us to get this feature!
Yes, please add this feature! It makes no sense that we cannot edit the same settings for the General channel as for others. We need to be able to disable replies for students who are being inappropriate in the general channel just like we can for other channels, especially as the Mute members feature is not available for everyone.
Please add this feature. Children are able to reply to anything on the general channel. We really do need to be able to turn this off as Educators because when you schedule channel meetings, the whole channel gets cluttered by chat.
This is critically important for educational use, it needs to be added immediately.
This is absolutely crazy that you would just completely remove this feature rather than just make it an option?!
Thanks for the comms on this MS!
Please add moderation to the general channel!
I've created an org-Wide Team more than one year ago for company communication. Users could not create post or reply to post since the creation of this Team.
Actually they still can't post but they can reply to a post in the general channel and we don't that of course.
Please Add moderation to general channel.

Very important for us to prevent user reply on general channel
Definitely need to be bale to restrict who can post in this channel AND allow team members to be able to reply.
Moderation is needed in the general channel more than in any other channel !!!!

Please implement ASAP, as General channel available in each Team and members are playing too much with unnecessary items.

I like the ability to restrict new posts to owners only, but I need team members to be able to REPLY to my posts and announcements!
This is extremely necessary. I want feedback and engagement on the posts and announcements I am making.
This is URGENT!
I actually thought we had that before already..
I like that we can restrict posts in the General channel owners only. It’s useful for announcements and encouraging discussion in other appropriate channels.
However, as an owner posting an announcement, I want team members to be able to reply to the conversation thread.
Announcement posts might be asking a question, celebrating success, requiring a response, running a poll.
Please alter the feature and allow team members to reply to team owner posts made in the General channel.

It would be greatly helpful so we can talk about department/group wide issues but moderate who is actually posting.

This is pretty critical for EDU usage..
