Obviously some security traps that needed to be worked, but product road map drove getting private channels out there as a priority - which I agree was the right thing to do.
Hopefully, the get a link for the private channel will be available soon so it can work seamlessly from the desktop app.
the workaround is OK, but annoying when everyone in my company (22,000) typically uses the app rather than the teams browser site.
