Microsoft Teams: Increasing the org-wide team limit from 5,000 to 10,000

From Microsoft Corporation

MC224732, Stay Informed, Published date: Oct 20, 2020Admin impact, Feature update, User impact

We are pleased to increase the limit for org-wide teams in Microsoft Teams from 5,000 to 10,000 members.

Note: org-wide teams aren’t yet available for Teams for Education.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 68692.

When this will happen
We will begin rollout in early November and expect to be complete by mid-November.How this will affect your organization

For organizations with 10,000 or fewer users, global admins will be able to easily create a public team that includes every user in the organization. Microsoft Teams will use Active Directory to keep membership current.

The limit of five org-wide teams per tenant is unchanged.What you need to do to prepare

After this rolls out to your tenant, if you don’t see the org-wide option when creating a team and you’re a global admin, you might have reached the five org-wide team limit or your organization might have more than the new size limit of 10,000 members.
