Hi,

I am trying to create Shared Channels under my Teams but the option isn't available to me.  I only have the options for Standard and Private.

I have checked the Teams policies and there is only one policy (Global) and the option for Shared Channels is turned on there.  

I am not sure why it's not available to me or my people.  Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Toby
