Any update on when channel permissions will be released and good examples of how they might be used in education?

We announced 'Private Channels' at Enterprise Connect last March with a timeline of later this year. We are still validating this feature with our early release customers and are working towards release. Be sure to watch the Microsoft Teams blog and your Office 365 message center for notification on when we are releasing the feature.

@Greg Maschman The last update on the User Voice request for private channels was July 3rd and listed a public release this fall.

Great use cases for education are the ability to have private channels for group projects where teammates can work together without other teams seeing their conversation and progress.
