Summary:
Microsoft 365 is promoting channel creation by elevating the channel creation option to the top, making it easier for users to create channels. This will reduce team proliferation and difficulty in managing teams. End-users will be able to create channels in a channel of their choice, and they need to pick the right team they want to host channels in. The rollout will begin in early January 2024 and is expected to complete by mid-April 2024.

2024-01-13MC MessagesToday, our experience focusses on letting users create team at the top level, with channel creation as a per team level option. Looking at the user behavior here, users end up creating more teams, where it could have been channels within teams, leading to team proliferation and difficulty in managing teams. To address this, we are looking to promote channel creation.

For users to collaborate effectively, they need to set-up the right collaboration space. Channels being the main hub of collaboration, we made it easier for users to create channels. With the channel creation option elevated to the top, users can now create the appropriate collab space by picking between team or channel. They will be able to host the channel into a team of their choosing.
