We are working on a better experience in Teams when a user is not connected to the internet. No timeline to share at this point, but we will keep you posted.
Currently we have Teams defaulted to show you the first (up to five) channels ever created. If you want to add more channels to your left rail view, just click the ellipses next to the channel name and select “Favorite”. When you favorite the channel, it will then be “pinned” to your left rail under that team name.
Try that and let me know if that meets your needs!

About the workaround - having big sized displays and being prevented from using it and working around design decisions does not help accepting the tools.
I have and want to see all channels in a team, without having to check every other day if somebody decided to add one.
We are working on a design with more density in mind. Until this design is solidified we are putting this item back to Under Review.
