Adding members to some channels


Dear all,
I have a question on Teams regarding channels.
The "Made_Up_Group-Team" is using a Teams group called Made_Up_Group-Team.
We also use the associated distribution list:
I need to invite extra "" members to contribute to some channels of the teams but I would like them not to be included in the distribution list.
Is it possible?

Kind regards,

There is no relation between Teams (or their underlying Group) and DLs. The membership lists will be kept separate.

hi Vasil,
thanks for information, but could you clarify?
I don't fully understand your answer.
Since there is no relation between Teams & DL's, is it possible to add member that is not part of group but some channel or?
Kind regards,

You should have no problems doing that. Just remember that channel members == team members == underlying Office 365 group members. Unless you're talking about private channels.
