Hi,

 

I am looking to reorganise the structure of Teams at our company and remove the option for team members to create private or public channels.

 

Is there a way that I can set up a Teams layout e.g

 

Channel 1

  Sub Channel 1a

  Sub Channel 1b

Channel 2

    Sub Channel 2a

    Sub Channel 2b

Channel 3

    Sub Channel 3a

Channel 4

   Sub Channel 4a

 

And roll this out to all employees so they have the same structure under Teams tab?

Hi @RK3090,

 

Sub-Channels in Microsoft Teams is not possible.

 

You can Create Teams and inside each team, you can create only 1 level of the channel, which could be Internal, Private, or Shared.

The ability to add channels and Teams on an adhoc basis is one of the best features of Teams. This allows groups of people to communicate as they desire.
Restricting the structure to what IT believes is best is not the way to support your users.
