Access permissions to channels in MS Teams


We are often asked if separate access permissions can be given to a channel. The answer is: No, not in the current version. Private channels are not available. Currently the permissions are configured for a complete team. All members of a team have access to all channels.

This feature is highly requested with more than 5,000 votes in uservoice forum. But it seems like Microsoft is working on it. Look at the comment in uservoice forum.
