I've a queries about Shared Channels....
I'm one of the Teams Administrators, and we have removed the option for users to create Teams themselves, so all requests tend to come via IT, which will now include Shared Channels as users are unsure what they are. I've had a request recently to assist with setting up a SC for a user....B2B direct etc has all be configured, and in testing it worked fine.
However, I'm not a member of the Team requiring the SC, and it's the current Team owner requesting the channel.
I have the option to create the channel....which I do, setting him as owner.
However, after creating the channel....it doesn't appear in the Admin area.
Adding myself to the Team (as member or owner), doesn't help...and the created channel still isn't visible.
Checking the SharePoint admin area, shows that the site exist though (well, both do as I did it twice as it hadn't appeared)...
In my previous testing, I was the owner of the test team AND an admin of teams....but if I can't see the shared channels listed, or their membership, as an administrator, how am I supposed to see what's going on / assist with getting users added etc?
Hoping someone can point me in the right direction as shared channels have so much potential in our org as we control two tenants and the users in both collaborate a lot, so this would save guest accounts....

So, have checked again this morning, and things have "updated"
I can now see both the channels I created in the Teams admin area, but they "look" like Standard channels.
However, within the Channel in Admin, it shows as "Shared".....so a bit of a bug here.
And within the Team itself (that I'm temporarily a member of) I can now see those Shared channels....and see the Owner(s), but I just can't see within it.....which is the behaviour I was expecting.
So, I'd say there are a few bugs here still....and it seems to take some time to create the Shared Channel and make it fully visible to an Admin.

@Mattias Skog Seems to working better for me now at least. *edit* The old ones have been updated too. So there might have been made some improvements. No delay or incorrect channel description when creating them in my test tenant.

@ChristianJBergstrom I just created two shared channels in the Teams admin center and none of them show up in the channel list and there is no way to access anything else but the SharePoint site. If I create a shared channel from within the Teams desktop client they show up immediately and everything works as expected.
