Microsoft Teams: Limits – Increasing team membership limit to 10,000 and few points about teams creation limit

Hi All,

LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL 🙂 I hope we all are safe:) STAY SAFE, STAY HEALTHY 🙂

Today again sharing one small news from Microsoft related to Microsoft Teams 🙂 And will discuss couple of points related to Teams creation limits as we have recent experience related to the same.

New feature: Microsoft is increasing the individual Teams membership limit to 10,000 users. Interesting 🙂

Roll-out duration: This roll-out is started for all customers by end of April. Expected to complete by end of May.

Any action needs to take: From admin perspective no further actions need to be taken. This feature will be enabled by default. May be organizations need to update the training material / documentation for the users.

Few points about teams creation limit:

Details: One of our customer appointed a user to create all the Teams for the organization. But very soon realized that a normal user can create only 250 Teams. This is by design limit. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/limits-specifications-teams

Global Admin role has exempt, Global Admin has no limit for Teams creation.

But some organizations are not willing to have giving permissions to user as a Global Admin role just to create Teams. Since it may be security issue.

So we have other alternative implemented, written application and use GRAPH APIs to create O365 groups / teams on be half Azure App.

Takeaways:

  1. If Teams to be created less than 250 then no problem :). This is the case may be for small organizations.
  2. If for organization its ok to Global Admin can create Teams then no problem 🙂
  3. Write a application (console/CSOM), use GRAPH APIs to create Office 365 Groups / Teams. Execute the code on behalf of Azure App. Automate the Teams creation. This is the most preferable approach.
