    if you have an existing post that you want to show in a different channel, you can edit the message and cross-post. This will add the top-level post to the different channel, but will not include the full set of replies. We will keep this request in mind as we evolve the cross-posting feature in the future and update if the status changes.

    Details on cross posting can be found here: https://support.office.com/article/cross-post-a-channel-conversation-in-teams-9c1252a3-67ef-498e-a7c1-dd7147b3d295.

    The thing that makes this worse is the connection to the @mention semantics.

    Example: I want a channel where anyone can get the attention of someone in the development team.

    Fail 1: Create a Team for this. Well, anyone that wants to talk to the developers has to "Join" the team to be able to post, and now they too receive any @team mentions, despite not really being part of the team.

    Fail 2: Create a Channel for this. You can @channel -- cool! Except, you can't tell who that is, and it turns out it's anyone that marks that channel as favorite. So it requires that the development team each individually favorite that channel, but there's no way to tell if they did or not. Additionally, the fact that non-favorite channels are hidden behind the "x more channels" flyout means that users that frequently use that channel will want to favorite it, but then they'll start getting @channel notifications.

    On top of all this, when you actually are doing the @channel mention, you don't have any idea WHO is going to get that. After you do it, you can see the number of people, but you can't tell who they are, and thus can't even tell if your message is going to reach the people you are trying to reach.

    The "Favorite" workaround is okay, but Favorite also causes you to get @channel notifications, which may not be desired, even though you might want to use the channel a lot. Consider: a channel used by support to ask questions of development. Support would want to use the channel frequently, but not necessarily get notifications.

    That aside, collapsing one item into a submenu of "one more item" is kind of wasteful. Example, with two channels and the second not marked as favorite:
