Hey guys, guess who’s back from maternity leave? Your favorite Teams PM, Suphatra! I’ve been back for a few weeks and catching up on where we’re at in Engineering.
Private channels is still actively in development, and I am hoping I’ll be given clearance to share with you some more details. What would be great is if you can post in this thread any specific questions you have about the feature, besides just an inquiry on the release date.
You can also email them to me at email@example.com, as well as any other concerns you might have.
It’s good to be back, and good to be posting on here again. I hope you are all doing well!
Teams could be great with this feature. It has been requested by many since 2016. Will we ever see it? If there are fundamental problems please tell us. It is an essential feature for using Teams as central communication and file access tool. Differentiated permissions as in traditional SharePoint are important too.
The feature team is still reviewing, there is lots of discussion about this item and I hope to have a decision soon.
This feature request is still on the backlog. But it continues to make its way through the queue. I’ll keep you posted as the progress develops.
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.
