When I try to convert a team from Public to Org-wide, I get a message saying "you are not authorised".

 

I'm a global admin and the team is only small (<100 members). Is there any other reason I'm unable to convert this team to an org-wide team?

Your team is small, but how many people is in the entire organisation (tenant) ? The limit for this is 2500

The team I'm trying to convert is our current company wide team, so our tenant size isn't much larger. Around 120-150 at a guess. Certainly a lot lower than 2500.

Hmm, If you are a global admin and see the org-wide option from teams it seems like something fishy!

Just tried to create one in my test tenant and actually got the same error!

 

Create a ticket with Microsoft!

I've reached out and it seems that changing a team from public/private to a org-wide team doesn't work! It does work to create a new team as an org-wide though!

 

I'll keep you posted!

Ah, okay. Glad it isn't just my setup!
Hi @Simon_L

To note, I have answered your other post. I have advised the same as Adam in terms of raising a ticket. I have also reached out on Twitter and will post back if I get a response.

Best, Chris

I also have this problem.

Any news on this?

No news yet on this! I’ll keep you posted!!

Hey all, I just tried converting a team from public to org-wide and it worked!

@Simon_L How did you do this? I don't see it as an option in Teams Admin (just switch between Public/Private). Is this a PowerShell script or done through Teams UI?
