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
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.
We’re updating our command library all the time, so keep checking the menu in the command box to see what’s new by typing / or @.
Due to a priority shift this request has slipped to the backlog. I hate to bring bad news. I will continue to provide the feature team your feedback and votes.
Hopefully this will move back up in the queue soon.
This item is still on the backlog.
Clippy is flattered by all the attention but plans to continue his retirement.
We’re currently working on defining a compact mode experience. I will post more details when we have more to share.
The feature team is still investigating this item and a decision has not been made yet.
I would be interested in seeing this added as a feature as it would assist us with the adoption & overall usefulness of Teams.
