Our international Office 365 trainer: Dina hosted a webinar on Microsoft TEAMS’ Private Channels on February 14th.
More than 80 of you registered! Thank you for your interest 😊
In addition, many “thank you” messages were sent via chat:
“Thank you, very interesting!”
“Thanks a lot. It’s much clearer now.”
Based on the gathered chat questions, Dina replies:
For all tasks, it is necessary to determine the right tool to use!!! For this type of event, TEAMS does not fit our need. Here is why:
First, to organize a live event, you need a presenter and an organizer (Ex: 2 Resources).
All chats must be validated in order to be viewed by all participants.
When you use the phone to login, you can automatically have the Organizer’s meeting rights (permissions).
In addition, if participants use the phone to join the session, they end up in the queue which means you must add them to the webconference without the possibility to mute them.
Participants can also switch their own microphone “ON” so the Organizer must constantly turn it “OFF”.
Lastly, there is a 25-second gap between the presenter’s sentence and the audio on the participants’ end although the sound and image of the presenter are in sync.
This is done via PowerShell commands on the Office 365 administration console.
Yes, creating a private channel generates a separate SharePoint site. The rights on the private channel are the same as on the SharePoint site. As a result, only members of the SharePoint site (private channel) have access to the data.
No, to access a channel (private or standard), you must be part of the team.
To date, Microsoft does not allow to have a FORMS tab in a private channel because of rights management. But the application is just waiting to evolve. I think we will see this feature in the future.
Yes, provided this person only belongs to one channel. For example, a team with 5 channels:
1 standard (the General channel that cannot be private) and 4 private channels.
Absolutely, the number of site collections increases to 2 million.
No, as the owner of a private channel, you simply see the one you belong to. The owner of the team, on the other hand, sees all the channels, private and standard.
As a team owner, you can prevent members from creating private channels and create them yourself for members who want them.
For now, the Microsoft Roadmap does not cover this issue. However, requests do appear in Microsoft Teams UserVoice:
I do not fully understand the meaning of the question. Microsoft TEAMS and online apps are part of the Office 365 suite. Therefore: No license, no suite.
No, in a private channel, we are limited to connecting certain applications. Click the “Add a tab” button and you’ll find out what you have access to. Depending on the strategy and services deployed in your company, you do not have all the connectors.
First, you must add people to the team, which can be done using a security group. It is not possible to add people via an email distribution list.
Members who are not part of the private channel do not see this channel in the tree.
Owners and members of the private channel do have access to private channel data in SharePoint.
The data is stored in the Cloud. If you think about it, this causes duplication… If that is your wish, you may go ahead and sync your private server. Personally, I do not see the point in doing this.
There is the option to archive teams in the settings (notched wheel next to the “Join or create a team” button), but you must own the team.
Private channels have been around since November 2019… 😊
This sounds like a good strategy to me. The General Channel is accessible to all members. Create one or more private channels based on privacy and manage access based on the needs of each team member.
Before setting those up, I advise you to think carefully about the organization of your team. TEAMS kind of loses its sense of open collaboration and the Owner becomes an experienced and efficient data security and access management gatekeeper.
To date, there is nothing about this on the Microsoft roadmap; However, requests do appear in Microsoft Teams UserVoice:
Microsoft does not give out any details on this subject, yet.
To date, it is true that we cannot view SharePoint sites generated from private channels via the SharePoint Admin portal. Indeed, in this sense there is a downside… However, it is possible to access this information via PowerShell. Learn more!
