Under Number teams that a global administrator can create and Number teams that a Microsoft 365 or Office 365 organization can have should it not be 500,000?
Hi Harald!!! True. Mistake, just adjusted! Thanks for your feedback.
Hi Jasper, the original data in the MS site use the comma alas 1000 separator. Therefore, several numbers ij the table you published do not match....
Hi Bernd!!! I saw it, mistake. It has been adjusted. Thanks for following!
Microsoft states that there can be a maximum of 200 channels per team, but only a maximum of 10 channels can be shown for members of a team. So what good are the other 190 channels? (Not that you would want to have 200 channels, but I think 10 is very limited).
You can click them open like that via 'settings' or search for. Personally really not convinced either. Better less and clear than channels for everything 🙂
How many people and how long can you use microsoft teams for free if you have a (private/family) subscription of Microsoft 365?
Hi Edith, I don't think you have many limits when using the private version. Only you have weing storage space. The duration is not limited but maximum 300 people are allowed.
