Filtering by Team does not show all the channels
Recent updates to the MicrosoftTeams client make finding a channel in a Team difficult if you know the name of the Team but not the channel.
In the latest Teams client update, you changed the way users search/filter on Teams and channels. It makes it EXTREMELY difficult to find or browse a channel in a Team.
The process now for finding a channel in Teams is as follows:
1) Filter on Team (it only Shows the General Channel)
2) Click on the ellipses "..."
3) Click on "Manage Team"
4) Click on "Channels"
5) Click on the Channel...
That's FIVE clicks to get to my Channel!
The response I got from the Teams team was to filter on Channel.. That may sound nice in principle, but in reality users work in many Teams that all have the same channel names. And with features like creating a Team based on another Team, this will only become more cumbersome.
Users will know the name of the Team much more than they will know the name of the channels... OR their Teams names will be much more unique than their channel names.
This is killing my productivity. PLEASE update the client so that when you filter by a Team name it shows ALL the channels for that Team and NOT just the General Channel or a Channel that has that name.
Microsoft is killing productivity in Teams! Please fix ASAP!
Yes please - causing mass confusion with users !

5000% agree! I can’t show all Teams (due to client facing demos) so I have most hidden and use /goto to hop to Teams. I used to click on the team name to get all channels. Now I can’t. Frustrating.
