As we begin implementing MS Teams as a one-stop application to replace Outlook+Skype+SharePoint to the extent possible, the Channel seems to be a great option to move the broken email threads into a single (internal) collaboration board, with a best practice of keeping each thread on a single subject within the Channel. This allows ALL of the stakeholders in the Channel to stay in the know. HOWEVER, the appropriate internal collaborators are often across other departments within the organization. To get around this we'll recommend that a Cross-Departmental "Team" be created for Channels that require Users that straddle several departments. This seems kludgy in that the SharePoint records created from this approach will force these artifacts to live outside of our department's records, so hoping that Microsoft can introduce a better workaround. Having a "guest" from another department is not uncommon .. not sure why that would be restricted within a channel.
