I am using Teams for the 1st time with the rest of my department and I am trying to set up my channels with sub channels, which I have just discovered I can't but I've received a message to say we are at capacity and I cant add anymore channels.

thanks

Jackie

How many channels do you have? The cap is 200 maximum! Deleted channel counts til they are fully removed
I dont know but this is the message i get You’ve reached the max. number of channels that you can auto-show for a team.
Agree with Adam here

It could be a case of waiting a few days as when a channel is deleted they are soft deleted meaning there is a period of time (if memory serves this is 30 days) before it is completely purged.

Even with Powershell it is still soft deleted

Best, Chris
Yes! This is 10 afaik! No way to extend it! You can go to manage channels and unclick earlier channels
Ok, to summarize here :).

Your max channel limit is 200 channels. When you create channels you can choose to auto show them for your users in the Team, You can have a max of 10 of these set to auto show at any given time.

All you have to do is uncheck the auto show box if you need to create many channels. You can then tell your users to go click on the channels they want shown in their lists. But at any given time you can only have those 10 at any one time.
