Hi Everyone – thank you for your patience. As was commented by someone below, Suphatra is no longer at Microsoft, but rest assured we are working on this feature.

This is the one main feature that is preventing my organization from using Teams. We NEED the ability to manage individual channel permissions and invite members outside of the team into specific channels.Anonymous commented
This is a must have. We've created project channels within my team, and we absolutely need the ability to invite non-team members to specific channels within the team to collaborate on that project. We are trying not to create separate teams for every single project.
Unfortunately due to re-prioritization this item has slipped back onto the “backlog” for the time being.
I hope to see it move back into “working on it” soon and will continue to engage the feature team with your feedback.
