Speaking from a legal office perspective, I can see that some cases would be of such magnitude that a dedicated "Team" or group would be appropriate with related Sub-channels for smaller focus groups of specified people would make sense. On the other hand, using the "Teams" level for the different areas of practice such as Family Law, Personal Injury, Business Law, etc. with Sub-channels reserved for each client/case makes as much sense. In either case, ABSOLUTE, AUDIT & ACCESS CONTROL CAPABILITY MUST BE MAINTAINED at both the Team and Sub-channel levels in order to protect a persons privacy and comply with State and Federal law. We are very anxious to get that Sub-channel Access Control implemented.

I am not seeing this functionality in Teams but I also think it would be GREAT to have! I have projects where certain people are only involved for certain portions (i.e. a testing user group) and I would like a place for them to collaborate but they don't need access to the entire project's collaborative material.

@Marc Wenning  Would it be possible for Microsoft Teams Leadership to take a firm position on this and tell us what that position is so as a company we can move forward. I don't see it anywhere in the Roadmap. It seems like it has been under consideration for many years... what gives?  

private channels are currently being tested by Microsoft in there internal environments. The rumor is that there are differing opinions about how it should work.
Heh. They've been saying that for over a year now. At least they finally updated the UserVoice item...



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.

~Alex

@Graeme Baker I am interested in haivng Channels be allocated to specific team members.
