      Lots of requests from my client for this feature. In the meantime we try to avoid creating new micro-Teams, so here's what I suggest if it fits the users' needs:

      1. Create the Channel
      2. Identify the users of that Channel
      3. Create a Chat, name it the same as the Channel, add the same users, get everyone to pin it (be aware of current max participants in a Chat)
      4. If necessary, create a location in SharePoint for their files and tweak permissions
      5. Add the new files area to the Channel as a SharePoint or Website tab

      A bit of extra work and friction but maybe better than loads of new mini Teams

        I apologize for the long silence. The channel limit of 100 has been increased to 200 channels.

        That being said, deleted channels apply to this limit. The feature team is working on this.

        What will happen is 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.

        I’ll make sure to get more consistent updates on this topic for you!

              My client is puzzled by this 'feature' too. A fix would be great, thanks.

                    Due to shifts in priority this has slipped onto the backlog.

                    The recommendation at this time is to use channels for conversations larger than 20 people.

                    I will continue to monitor the course of this feature request and keep you posted as things develop.
