Is there a certain limitation with the number of meetings a user can initiate in a team in MS Teams? I am comparing the behavior experienced by my client to my own organization. Client's team is composed of several channels, each channel consisting of different members. Client was able to initiate 3 meetings (through Meet now) and on the 4th try, he will receive the error message attached. On my end, I was able to initiate 4 meetings and will receive the error on the 5th try. I am also curious what can be the factor regarding the difference with the behavior we experienced.

Teams limits are documented here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/limits-specifications-teams and there is not a limit in regards of the number of meetings a user can start

@Juan Carlos González Martín Thank you for checking. Have you tried this on your end? This is for simultaneous meeting. I have checked the link you provided before and it does not include limits set for simultaneous meeting for a user. There should be a limit that was set as we are showing the error messages.

Yes, our users are reporting pretty much the same problem - which I can't find an answer to anywhere on the Microsoft Tech sites...

Our Teams typically have 5 Channels, an Owner can simultaneously facilitate a video call in 4 of those channels, they need to jump in an out of each of these calls, to check on progress in each Channel - when they come to try initiating the 5th call - no dice.

IS there a limit on the number of Channel video calls one person can facilitate at any one time?

Can't see any documentation anywhere on Microsoft sites.

@ColHawksworth You can only be active in one meeting at the time and have three other meetings on hold. If you like to join a fifth meeting you first have to leave one of the other meetings. The meetings will of course continue and you are able to join again at a later stage (provided you don't exceed the limit mentioned above).
