Convert Microsoft Teams channel from public to private?

Convert Microsoft Teams channel from public to private?

A question I have often been asked recently:

"Can you convert a Microsoftteams channel to a private channel?"

Unfortunately, the answer is no. For the time being, it does not look as if things will be changing any time soon.

There are only 2,000 votes on uservoice to develop this feature.

What you can do is re-create the channel with the same name as described in this blog post by Paul Keijzers.

My message is -> vote to make this feature more important.


What is next on the roadmap?

New features are added weekly to the Microsoft 365 Roadmap via UserVoice. Evolutions and new announcements can always be consulted at:

In this Microsoft 365 roadmap you can find information about Microsoft Teams but also about: Excel, Microsoft Edge, Forms, OneDrive, Stream, Visio, Whiteboard, etc. Be sure to check out this page: Microsoft 365 Roadmap | Microsoft 365.
