    Very hard for users to understand that this is not possible - especially when they're used to do this in Dropbox, etc.

    We need it for private Microsoft Accounts too.

    This feature request is still being reviewed by the feature team. No new details to share at this time.

    I frequently observe people clicking on the team’s name expecting to see content, instead of it expanding/collapsing channels. I think people think of it like file explorer, where any folder you click has its own content, and if you want to expand/collapse you click the little icon.

    So I’ve often thought that a dashboard of sorts would make much more sense. The most obvious way to do this, to me, would be to just show the home page of the underlying SharePoint site.

    Obviously that page would need to be changed a bit. But it already needs some work anyway, since there isn’t an obvious way to get to the team if you somehow end up on the SharePoint site. The homepage needs a way to go directly to a certain channel in the team, for instance.

    By having separate libraries for each channel you also get these benefits:
    - Easier to have separate permissions for each channel and even sharing settings
    - No more folders in the default doclib that confuses people, especially when they get renamed, deleted, etc
    - Makes it possible to associate the default doclib with the general channel so everything that is created in the SharePoint default doclib can show up in Teams, unlike today where people are confused as to why their content sometimes doesn't show up.

    With this it should of course become possible to:
    - Reassociate an existing channel with a new doclib and move its content to the new doclib

    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

    Listen, channels should never have had just a folder in the default doclib to begin with, they should each have their own doclib instead. This would have made things much simpler!

    The general channel could have used the default doclib and anything you put there would have been immediately visible from Teams.

    No more confusion as to why folders created in the root in SharePoint aren't visible in teams. No more confusion as to what those folders belonging to teams channels are doing in SharePoint.

    And no more confusion regarding renaming channels and corresponding folder folders. Now you do get a new problem as renaming a doclib is no simple matter if it means renaming the URL and people are syncing it using OneDrive, linking to it, etc. But that's another discussion.

    I encourage people to go vote for this feature if they agree:

    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.

    Teams has so many features packed into one interface, we need to be able to open up things separately. Not only chat, but also documents, tabs, meetings, planner, etc.

    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.

    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.

    We acknowledge the customer demand for Private Channels and have been hard at work on it. Private Channels is currently in preview with a select group of customers. We expect to release the feature to the public later this Fall, and will update here when we are starting to roll out to all customers. We appreciate all the feedback you have provided to us on this forum and thank you for your patience.

    Good to hear the feature is coming. I want to echo what others are saying that while it’d be a start, it wouldn’t be enough if the only thing implemented were channels private to only the members of the team. We need something along the lines of the rest of what the original poster requested and/or the ability to control who can see each channel.

    We really would like to see this too. We have bought a competing product, because it had that feature (and maybe one other) that SkypeFB/Teams couldn't deliver. We're in education, by the way.

    Wow, I'm surprised this hasn't gotten more votes… Seems like a really useful feature - for education too.
