Planning for channel types

There are three types of channels that you can create for any given team:

  • Standard
  • Private
  • Shared

Standard channels are accessible by all members of the team, whereas private channels are only accessible to a subset of the team's members. Private channels can have unique owners who may or may not include the overall team owners – these private channel owners manage the membership for that channel.

Whereas the standard channel files are stored in an associated folder in the team's supporting SharePoint site, private channels require a completely separate SharePoint site to maintain separate membership management. So, each private channel has its own SharePoint site where its files are stored, but private channels don't get a unique Microsoft 365 group for membership.


Once you've created a channel, you cannot change its type. You'd need to create a new channel of the correct type instead.
