Hey Microsoft Teams users — I want you to weigh in on new features around channels and group chats. The engineering team and I have put together this survey to find out how you want to see channels improve. You can fill it out here: https://microsoft.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_esTxHdABLQxKLvn
And I’m still waiting on approval to get you a good update about Private Channels. I can say that we ARE working on it, fervently.

The concept of O365 TEAMS is brilliant. However in practice, within a host of industry applications, it's not as user friendly as it simply should be. For example - the premise is collaboration. Great. However, within the manufacturing industries, interacting with customers is paramount to a successful relationship. It's awesome that you can invite external customers to a TEAM. However, it's not a good business practice to allow ALL communication to be shared with that customer. Hence, the ability to create a TEAM, then create private channels within that TEAM is absolutely critical - just because humans are humans. It's really quite simple. Do you even realize how enthusiasm wanes drastically when TEAMS is introduced and then that little caveat of "oh. so you know all members can see everything within a TEAM." This alone makes adoption of TEAMS extremely difficult for everyone.
Personally, I do not feel the breakdown of various TEAMS is necessary. But that's just my opinion within my experience in Financial, Manufacturing and Medical Industries I've helped migrate to O365. However, the ability to have private channels within a TEAM is paramount.
Just my thoughts.
