The questions that are usually asked are:
❓what private channels we have
❓in what Teams do we have private channels
❓how many of private channels do we have
❓who are the owners of the private channels.
❓are the owners of the private channels active in the tenant
❓and the one that’s specifically challenging is to validate private channels by the private channel owner (not the Team owner – inception once again Microsoft 😵), because mostly I saw that private channels owners are not the Team owners
