Enable up to 500 attendees in Teams meetings
Skype rolled out testing on meeting attendees last year to increase from 250 to 500 attendees. The same needs to occur in Teams meetings. The difference between 250 attendees for Teams meetings and 10,000 Live Event attendees is too great.
The meeting participant limit has been increased to 300 in GCC, GCCH and DoD, which is the same limit as for the General Public.
I copied this from the MSTeams site under "Meetings and calls" on May12, 2020.
"Number of people in a meeting (can chat and call in) 350"
Today (June16) the site indicates Number of People in a Meeting is 250.
350 was generally plausible for our organization (500 would be better)
250 renders it useless for many of our needs.
Also for group chats please! At least 500 attendees.
The group chat could then easily serve as an alarm function in crisis situations !
This could be very important for law enforcement organizations
(Client Police organisation in Belgium - around 40000 people !!)
