Teams Security / Private Channels

Occasional Contributor
We're running into some challenges with privacy and security in Teams.

We can make private channels, but cannot convert them back when the users become challenged by the inability to use certain applications or functions e.g. Planner (which also cannot do private/sensitive tasks), posting a meeting to a private channel, Forms etc.

Can you add the ability to move conversations to a new channel or the ability to convert from public to private and vice versa?

Perhaps we need to be pushing (voting) UserVoice about channel converting between public & private out more: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/38535709-convert-private-chann...

If you have extended needs for those features you could consider using a private team instead of a private channel?

At this point there is no way to convert to/from Private channels.  Watch this UserVoice post for updates: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/38535709-convert-private-chann...
