I have a Team and created a private channel. I can add any member of the team but one particular member. He's an admin of team. I tried removing and re-adding him to team but still I cannot see him in the list to add to the private channel. Can you help?

Hello, sounds like the old bug but obviously still there. What you've done is usually enough, removing from team and then adding again. There are some workarounds for the issue as you can tell from this UV request (see comments as well).
