    partially done  ·  Warren responded

    As mentioned in the prior status, the channel limit was raised from 100 to 200.

    In the near future a retention limit will be set so you can still go back and reinstate a channel you had deleted. Once the retention period has expired then the channel will get a hard delete which will free up the space and no longer count toward the 200 channel limit.

    This will help with some of the issues you have voiced in the comments below.
    But I understand many of you wish the limit to be further increased. I will continue to provide your votes and comments to the feature team.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/limits-specifications-teams says the hard delete will free up the channels. Our IT company says their MS Devs are telling them it is still a lifetime limit. What is the real answer?

    Christian commented  · 

    So.... Partially done still?

    "In the near future a retention limit will be set so you can still go back and reinstate a channel you had deleted. Once the retention period has expired then the channel will get a hard delete which will free up the space and no longer count toward the 200 channel limit."

    Is the "near future" still in the future - because that would explain my issues.

    Christian commented  · 

    I just hit the max limit but I am only at a little over 100. The ones that have been deleted in the past are a long time ago so when does the hard delete happen?

    We know you are patiently waiting for this feature. This feature is being implemented in stages. Fast tenant switching is currently in testing both internally and with early customers. We expect to release to the public in the Fall. I’ll post an update once it’s rolling out.

    Full multi-tenant, multi-user support will be added after fast tenant switching.

    This would be a huge addition. Right now we put links to sessions in a tabbed OneNote page.

    The feature team is still digging into the details of this item. I don’t have an update yet, but all your feedback and votes are shared with the feature team every month.
    I’ll keep pushing this item and hope to have more details soon.

    I just hit a roadblock getting our CEO to buy-in to Teams because of this. After explaining how easy and better it is to organize the files and information he wanted to print something... So, then it was time to stutter... Just download it is not a viable answer.

    Plus 1000!

    This would really clean up the channel and make the email feature even more useful - especially for those people who are slow to get with the Teams program.

    try this instead  ·  Warren responded

    Updating the status to “Try this instead” and have added the clarification that after 30 days the name is once again available.

    The reason for this decision was that Channels can be restored 30 days after being deleted. During this time, we intentionally don’t support creating a channel with the same name. After the 30 days, the name is available.

    You can workaround this by restoring a deleted channel, renaming it, and then deleting the channel again. The previous name is then available for use.

    This workaround has already been mentioned in the comments and if an immediate reuse of a Channel Name is required, this is the recommended solution.
    -Warren

    Christian commented  · 

    Again, please clarify this. I have channel names more than 30 days old that I cannot use again, nor can I reuse and delete.

    Does this mean I just have some legacy forever not-reusable names? But moving forward I should be good to go?

    Christian commented  · 

    I just confirmed that is the case. I tried to create a channel with the same name as one deleted more than 30 days ago and it says Channel name already taken. I do not have that channel listed in my deleted channel area.

    Your post makes it sound like it would only be during the 30 day restore period it cannot be reused (which certainly makes sense). But now after 30 days, what are we to do?

    Christian commented  · 

    What if it is longer than 30 days? I have tried to reuse a name from a deleted channel that does not show up in my deleted channels list and it still says I cannot. How can I restore it, to delete it, if I don't see it to restore?

    Christian commented  · 

    I know there are several posts in here about this but I could not fine anything that clearly answered or addressed the issue.

    I have a channel that was deleted more than 21 days ago. When I look at my channels I do not see it under deleted. When I tried to create one with the same name it says it is used already. Where is it used if I do not see it? How do I know how many channels and channels names I have if I cannot see them? How on earth am I supposed to administer what I cannot see?

    Thanks for following our suggestion to vote this up on SharePoint. It worked! SharePoint has confirmed that they have already started working on this and I’ll be getting an ETA from them after the holidays. -Suphatra

    This feature request is still being actively worked upon. Good progress is being made, but I cannot share any additional details at this time.

    While we work on our Whiteboard you can also try the third party whiteboard app Freehand by Invision that can be found by clicking the Store icon from within Teams and go to the app gallery.

    Thank you for all the feedback and suggestions.

    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.

    Sorry for the delay on an update on this one! I’m hunting down the status for you and will update once I have it.

    Also, if you are interested in participating in testing or surveys for this, just tweet me at @skprufo.

    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.
