Create an Org-Wide Team in Microsoft Teams

What is an Org-Wide Team?

An org-wide Team allows global administrators to easily create a public team that pulls in all users in the organisation and keeps the membership up to date with Active Directory and updates as users joins and leaves the organisation.

Only global administrators can create an org-wide team and is currently limited to organisations with no more than 5,000 users.

If your organisation has 5000 or less users, then the global administrators will see the org-wide as an option when creating a new team.

To create an org-wide Team:

Navigate to Teams Desktop or Web Client and click on Teams > “Join or create Team

Then select “Create Team
