What's Org-Wide Team in Microsoft Teams?

  • Org-wide teams provide an automatic way for everyone in a small to a medium-sized organization to be a part of a single team for collaboration or announcements.
  • With org-wide teams, you can easily create a public team that pulls in every user in the organization and keeps the membership up to date with Active Directory as users join and leave the organization.

Org-Wide Team in Microsoft Teams

Note: Only global admins can create org-wide teams

Who will be added to the Org-Wide Team in Microsoft Teams?

  • When an org-wide team is created, all global admins and Teams service administrators are added as team owners, and all active users are added as team members.
  • Unlicensed users are also added to the team. The first time an unlicensed user signs in to Teams, the user is assigned a Microsoft Teams Exploratory license.

Who will not be added to the Org-Wide Team in Microsoft Teams?

These types of accounts won't be added to your org-wide team:

  • Accounts that are blocked from sign-in
  • Guests
  • Resource or service accounts (for example, accounts associated with auto attendants and call queues)
  • Room or equipment accounts
  • Accounts backed by a shared mailbox

Limitations of Org-Wide Team in Microsoft Teams

When creating an org-wide team, consider the following things:

  • You can create up to five org-wide teams for your Microsoft 365 tenant.
  • Each org-wide team can include up to 10,000 members.

If you don't see the Org-wide option when creating a team and you are a global admin, the feature may not have yet rolled out to your tenant, you have reached the five org-wide teams limit, or your organization might have more than the current size limit of 10,000 members. This limit might be increased in the future.

If you don’t ask, the answer is always NO!
