    I echo some of the people in this thread, and came here just to say this.

    I would love the ability to create a private channel within a team.

    I have several teams where I want to work on projects with only certain members of the team (~3). And I want to be able to do it without cluttering others in the team (~20) while creating the safe space for the project team to bounce ideas off within the project team without fear of judgement or interference from the rest of the team.

    I would love to create a channel with just my manager to discuss one-to-one topics, that I would over email and forget about if I didn't get a response. Microsoft Teams and the channels construct drives accountability and transparency, and to be able to do it in subsets of a team, without having to create a Team for each is critical.

    I sincerely hope that you will add this feature in the coming release. It would really help me push the usage of Microsoft Teams within the org.
