    What is the maximum number of tabs that you can create in a single channel?

    • Hi Karen,

      As far as I’m aware there is no limit on the number of that that you can create in a single channel. When the Tabs don’t fit you will get “X more” drop downs to appear. I could however imagine that if that drop down gets overloaded that the user experience doesn’t become any better

      Thanks,
      Pieter

  2. Is there a limit to how many teams a particular user can join? I wonder if it’s also 250 (the same number you quoted for team creation).

    • Hi Jim,
      I must say that I haven’t tried joining 250 teams, but as far as I know there isn’t a limit on the number of teams that you can join.

    How many teams can a user create?
    A user can create 250 teams.

    Does this mean exactly what it says? If I create 250 teams, I can create no more? Even if I have left those teams?

    This blog entry needs to be updated in several ways – from the max. size of chat groups to the max. size of teams. Also, the number of guests is limited to 5x a tenant’s user licenses.

    What is the maximum team creation limitation a SharePoint Admin Role on the tenant can create? Is it the same as the user? [that would seem odd] or the same as a Global Admin?
