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.
It would also be nice if events in the calendar weren't called "Meetings" because sometimes it's not a meeting, it's a trip or training or vacation or a reminder or just time when you don't want to be bothered.
I’m so happy to share an update with you! The feature team has let me know that they are working hard at this and are aiming for a spring time release.
Please comment below if you might be interested in testing or TAP, and include the industry, company size, and location of your org. We would likely want to hit a very wide range of demographics.
It sounds like you are asking for Private Channels which should release later this calendar year. You can follow the topic at: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103/suggestions/16911079
A workaround, for the time being, would be to create a team “support services team” and have “data management” and “tech support” be their own channels.
Thank you for your feedback!
I would want actual sub-teams so that I could put people in those sub-teams so they wouldn't get notifications or communication from the other sub-teams, but I would have the ability to make a file and choose to have it available and collaboratively editable by all sub-teams.
For instance, doing inventory at 30 locations. I want to give a list of what each location is missing, but don't need them all to be able to see them all. I want those localized in the interest of no clutter.
I also want to make an excel Calendar, since you don't provide a good large collaborative calendar option, so they can all put when they're available for my visit and be able to see when another site has claimed a day or week. That would be more convenient than me emailing them a list constantly, or emailing back and forth individually with 30 different managers.
