MC259845 (Updated) Teams meeting invite recipients limit from Outlook We're making some changes to limit the number of individual recipients allowed for scheduling a Teams meeting from Outlook (WIn32 client only at this time). We will apply this limit for meetings created with more than 750 recipients in the invite.

MC261534 (Updated) SharePoint: Updates for Microsoft Teams connected team sites The below updates to the viewing and management experience of Teams connected team sites and channel sites will simplify the end-user experience in the following ways;
Updates to managing site classification and site permissions;
Previously;

Site classification (sensitivity) and advanced site permissions could be managed in the SharePoint team site Settings pane.

Currently;

Site classification (including sensitivity labels and information barriers) will be read-only in SharePoint. Site permissions will not be available to edit in the SharePoint Advanced Settings page and instead will be managed in the team settings in Microsoft Teams.

The only exception to this rule is for a parent site. The parent site is a group connected team sites that hosts standard channels and is connected to private channel sites. The Parent site still allows edits to the site permissions from SharePoint.

New visual updates to the SharePoint team site header;
A Microsoft Teams icon in the site header and Go to Channel button in the document library command bar are designed to help users confirm the type of SharePoint site and channel and easily navigate to the connected team in Microsoft Teams or private channel.

Removal of the Go to Channel banner in document libraries;
The Go to Channel link has been updated to consistently be available in the command bar when viewing document libraries, while removing the additional banner that was occupying space in the library.
Simplified SharePoint team sites;
This update improves the template utilized for the channel sites by having the classic SharePoint features off-by-default and will employ the full capabilities of the modern team site.
