Shouldn't the number of teams that a global administrator can create and the number of teams that a Microsoft 365 or Office 365 organisation can have be 500,000?

Hi Jasper, the original data in the MS site use the comma as 1000 separator. That is why several numbers in the table you published are not correct...

Microsoft states that there can be a maximum of 200 channels per team, but for members of a team only a maximum of 10 channels can be shown. So what use are the other 190 channels? (Not that you would want to have 200 channels, but I find 10 very limited).
