    I think the main concern is retaining the chat content for a specific channel. Having the ability to export channel contents to a standard format like json and then importing that content to a new channel in an existing team would probably solve half of this issue.

    We acknowledge the customer demand for Private Channels and have been hard at work on it. Private Channels is currently in preview with a select group of customers. We expect to release the feature to the public later this Fall, and will update here when we are starting to roll out to all customers. We appreciate all the feedback you have provided to us on this forum and thank you for your patience.

    Public and Private Teams does not solve this issue at all. Giving team owners the ability to create a restricted channel inside of an existing team, makes a lot more sense than creating a new team to serve the purpose of a specific channel. For a real world use case we have a few teams, Product, Engineering, Operations. Each team will have their own channels, but it would be great to have a "Team Leads" channel that is restricted to just the team leads for each team. Currently there are two possible work-a-rounds 1 have a persistent group chat, which misses out on many of the channel features, or create 3 more teams Product-Leads, Engineering-Leads, Operation-Leads. The current approach leads to what I refer to as "Team Sprawl". Basically extra teams are created to circumvent feature deficiencies. This feature will also be important when the external access and federation is completed. a new team should not have to be created to provide access to an external contractor, but having a specific channel within a team, where appropriate personnel can communicate with them would be ideal.

    Linux client would be very helpful, with Apple's current disdain for power users and dell offering solid supported Linux options we are seeing more developers move to Linux. It would be great if you could start with a client for Debian derivatives and one for RedHat derivatives. This will be especially important once external access and federation is done, as it will open the tent to a much larger user base. https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16911109-external-access-and-federation

    I think that it ties into this: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/18405877-mute-or-leave-a-group-chat

    There if there is a particular channel that I don't want to every get notified on it would be nice to mute that channel, and or hide it from view. this way the channel name is not bolded, and I can completely ingore it unless someone specifically @mentions me. Also it would be nice for users to be able to set up custom notification, let's say I want to get notified every time co-worker X posts to channel-y. perhaps its not a co-worker, but a bot or a connector. For instance with the Jenkins connector the channel name is bolded any time the connector hits the channel, it would be great for users to be able to set a notification when there is a post from a connector that contains specific key words, like "Build Failed"

    I think it has been pretty well covered by others, but seeing who is in a given channel provides insight to your current audience, and help determine whether an @mention is required. If all members of the channel are already there, an @mention may not be needed.

    This feature request is still being worked upon.

    I am still trying to get details on what we could expect for Cortana in Teams and will share examples once something is available.

    on the backlog  ·  Warren responded

    Due to a priority shift this request has slipped to the backlog. I hate to bring bad news. I will continue to provide the feature team your feedback and votes.
    Hopefully this will move back up in the queue soon.

    Performance has been and continues to be a big focus area for Teams. One main area we have made improvements in is responsiveness for the most frequent user actions of switching between Chat, Channel, and Activity. We are also focused on reducing resource consumption and application load time. More improvements are on the way.

    The slash command changes are still in the works. I hope to have more details to share soon.

    It would be really nice to know which people in both conversations and channels have read a specific message.
