As others have stated it makes an All Employees channel unusable. I can't imagine that Microsoft lives with this on their own internal Teams - the minute you see this happening it's obviously a train wreck.
Please check “Teams/Skype Consumer chat and calling interop” on the public roadmap at microsoft.com/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters.. for updates.
This feature request is working its way through the backlog queue. No new details are available yet.
As others have said it is pretty clear that we need the choice at the time of site creation:
[ ] - I want to use an existing site (brings up a site selector)
[ ] - Create a new site for this team
This feature item is still in the works. We will keep you posted as we have new info from the feature team.
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.
