Hi all, was wondering about this in light of the fact that at the moment, due to the fact my group makes heavy use of per-channel permissions, Teams is currently out of the question for us. We're hoping to fix that, though, we'll not be able to until we either know more about whether this functionality is being implemented at all or not. It's very important to us due to the many facets of our staff. We're a small group, but we do have lots of granularity in terms of privileges and access. Thoughts?

This is a big thing and there's been numerous threads about it. But Microsoft IS working on it! MS last post stating there are working on it was on the 29th of september last month.
Please vote for it and have a look now and then for updates:

Patience and waiting may be virtuous, but to be clear at the moment you are waiting for an undefined period for the arrival of an undefined feature. When it comes it might not be what you imagine. Teams is so much better than using Discord, how long are you happy to accept that for in order to get this feature. According to Microsoft 329,000 companies are using Teams, 54 of those have >10,000 month active users (and Accenture has .100,000). People are using it widely.
1. There's no 'cost' to having multiple teams, they sit in that left rail just like channels do, to a user what exactly is the difference? Think of teams as being more flexible as you can group together channels that require the same permissions in a team.
2. Don't forget group chat, create named conversations with whomever you like, pin them as favourites in your chat screen and you get a view an awful lot like Slack.

How was it confusing?
What sort of things would you have as topics or channels? where would you need different permissions and where would you want everyone to access?

Being in multiple teams of different scales works pretty well. So these could be as big as your whole division, or as small as 3 or 4 managers. There are 2 key bits of advice that I would make sure people know
1. Use the favourites in the list of Teams and Channels so you can keep focused on your most immediate priorities. You don't lose or leave your non-favourites, just fold them up so they aren't always on view.
2. Team people to use @mentioning on all new posts to draw in the right people to the conversation. Don't assume people will browse and read channels. If you want the entire channel to ready then use @channel.

Well, the field that's used is call Display Name, it's meant to be the version of your name that's used in apps for display. It's a fait point that some other apps as part of Office 365 allow you to shorten after adding an @name, typically to just the first bit.
