Microsoft Teams: Manage who can use @mention

Leave a comment

With the recent announcement of raising the maximum team membership limit from 2500 users to 5000 users, I think that it becomes important to learn how to restrict who can use @MentionYourTeam.

Note: Any Team owner can modify your Team settings.

To restrict whom can use @Team and @Channel mention:

  • Open your Team client and select a Team
  • Click on the ellipsis (…) on the right of the name of your team
  • Click on Manage Team

In Team Settings

  • Click on Settings
  • In the @mentions section remove the check mark next to: “Show members the option to @team” to restrict the use of @MentionTeam
