Hi, can anyone tell me how to convert a private channel back to a standard one?
Private channel is lacking (yet) some apps which I would need....

we have private channels available since a few weeks, not sure whether we are in beta or not- at least so far its working fine except the limited number of apps available there...

@Wolfgang Gottschalk I was looking to create private channel in MsTeams but it looks like it is not available to me. Is there any way to turn on this feature?

@Wolfgang Gottschalk I don't suspect that there's an easy "click here" method of doing that.
I was investigating the same question today.
Private Channels actually create an entirely new SP site. But something on the backend points your Teams Channel to the newly created, private SP site.
Below are three snippets.
The first picture is my team I use for training our employees. You can see I've created some private channels.
The second picture shows the SP site representing the "public" channels in the Team. Note the URL for the Team.
The third picture shows the site for the files in the Private Channel. Note the URL, the QuickNav link to "Parent Team", and the account that made the last 'Modified by".
Based on these things, I don't see an immediately easy way to revert a Private Channel back to a Public Channel.

Thanks for looking into that. Ok, understood- this would obviously require a change in the software architecture. So, only set up a new and transfer manually...

@Wolfgang Gottschalk Thank you!
I have the same issue and it's unfortunate this isnt a quick parameter change. We loose the tabs, etc. Very manual.
