We are using Teams both within the company and with partners. Is it possible to hide tabs and/or apps for certain users? Please give me guidance how to do. Thanks!

Hi!
Tabs and apps are shown for all users of the Teams, so no! Depending on apps and so on I guess you can disallow certain services and so on for particular users but that would not hide the tab and result in a broken experience for the users!
What you can do is use private channels in Teams and add tabs in those and invite certain users there! Although keep in mind that private channels do not support all tabs and apps

@adam deltingerThanks for great info.

Regarding private channels, do you know if they support my own custom canvas apps?

 

Thanks!
