Increase maximum number of Private Channels.
We have 37 schools in our school district and at a minimum, we would like to have a Private Channel for each school. Please consider increasing the maximum number of Private Channels to 50.
I like to have a private channel for each student to communicate directly with me (since you removed the chat option). This is not possible with the current limit (class of 60 students total) so I have to divide them in two and post everything twice. They're also unable to participate in conversations online between these two groups. Very frustrating!!!

I needed to add 34 private channels for my class that I team teach - couldn't be done so I had to make some students volunteer to share a channel!! There goes their privacy!

Please make it possible to add new private channels, when former private channels are deleted. I have now extended max number of private channels in my class because deleted channels are included in the maximum number. :-(“

The limit in the number of private channels makes MS Teams rather useless for teaching and supervising classes of normal size (eg 100 students divided in groups of 3). Otherwise it is a nice tool, but the lack of this means we rather use Discord and similar tools.

For our large courses (150+ students per section), we run up against the maximum number of private channels very quickly. This means that using private channels to facilitate their group work is infeasible unless we request multiple duplicate Teams (in which case we have to manage membership manually, which is a separate problem).

I'd like to have a private channel for each student - but, with class sizes over 30, I'm not able to do so. Please consider increasing the number of private channels that can be created.

I wanted to have a private channel with each of my students (40) and I could not do the last 10 students. The number is too limited.
Please vote this one so we can consolidate the votes.
Agree: I am using channels for tests (one student for each channel) and 30 channels are too few.

There is another idea on this (with more votes), please vote here: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/39975511-your-team-has-reached-the-maximum-number-of-privat

with 30 as a limit we can not make enough private channels for every student in the class. even getting it to 35 would be excellent.
