Disable @Team / @Channel mentions only for Members, not Owners
There's an option to disable @Team / @Channel mentions for Members, but this also includes Owners (although Owners are still considered Members of a Team, these options are confusing with their text) - If there could be an option for only Owners to do all Team / Channel mentions.

PLEASE! You can turn off mentions for channels but not for teams. Huge oversight.

We absolutely need this. We have a Team for our central office (250+ members) and don't want members to be able to notify all staff by @mention-ing the team or channel. However, the Team loses a big chunk of its usefulness when Team Owners aren't able to @mention the team to ensure that a time-sensitive announcement is seen by staff. The current workaround is to briefly enable @mentions, make a post, then disable them again, which is annoying and time-consuming.
Totally agree with this idea. Org Wide Teams are a good idea but you lose control over who is pushed into these groups. We have external users which would be added within 'Org Wide Teams' which is why we choose Dynamic Group instead.
The terminology also is misleading by stating on the setting 'Allow members to use @Team or @Channel options.
