Cannot tag a shared channel within a non host team.

Occasional Visitor

I have created the shared channel on the host team and shared it with another team I own, the channel shows up and chats can flow between them, however from within other channels on the non host team, I cannot use @ to tag the shared channel.  Is this expected or is there some setup needed to be able to tag the shared channel on the non host team?


Update: I've found you can tag between shared channels and you can even tag an entire team, as both the Host team and the teams where the channel is shared show up when @'ing.  You cant, however, tag a standard / private channel, from a shared channel. Is there some restriction on this? 


Thanks in advance for any insights on this!
