    Are you a team member?

    According to your screenshot, there are a few possible solutions that you can try:

    • Check if you have the permission to create channels in the team. Please confirm with the team owner to go to More options (…) next to the team > choose Manage team > Settings > Member permissions and make sure the option Allow members to create and update channels is selected. User's image
    • Check if the team has reached the limit of channels. About more details, you may refer to the article.
    • In Microsoft Teams Admin Center > Manage teams > select the team and click Settings > click the Edit button in the upper right corner of the window > make sure to enable the option "Add and edit channel ". MicrosoftTeams-image
    • If you’re using the Teams desktop or mobile app, try using the web version: to check if the issue still exists.
    • Ask another team owner to remove your account from the team and re-add you back to the team as the owner. And see if this will make any difference.
