General channel. Grrr. My number one Teams bugbear.
I get you may have to have a default channel in a "Team" for a "Team" to exist. I grasp that concept. Fine. So, why not make it appear with a name like "Default" or something, allow Team owners to change it to something else, and - ta-dah! All this pain and hurt goes away...
We don't use the "Conversations" or "Files" tabs so much, as we try to point some of our (slightly technophobic) team members to precisely the content they need. I don't mind it existing, I don't even mind if I can't make it invisible (but that would be an option, to be honest). But this (along with the badly named and unnecessary "General" channel) are Microsoft imposing its working practices on users. Let me at least move it.
And please please please please please let me at least rename the "General" channel -- I could use it for something then, instead of it just getting in the way.
