Manage teams policies in Microsoft Teams
Team policies help define what users can and cannot do in teams and channels. You can specify if users can discover private teams and create private channels. Manage team policies using the Microsoft Teams admin center, where you can select the default organization-wide global policy, or create custom policies and assign them to users. All users will be assigned the global policy by default unless a custom policy is assigned to them.
To create a custom policy using the Microsoft Teams admin center:
Go to Teams > Teams policies, in the left pane.
Click on Add.
Enter a Name
for the policy.
Choose the settings that you want:
Discover private teams
: Turn on this setting to allow users to discover private teams in search results and in the team gallery.
Create private channels
: Turn on this setting to allow users to create private channels.
Click on Save.
