I've provided a screenshot of two different Distribution Lists below.  When I try to add #DistList1 to my Team, I have the ability to expand the group and remove specific people I don't want in my team.  However, when I try this with #DistList2 I don't have the option.  The main difference between the two that I can see is that #DistList2 has 100 members and #DistList1 has 13.  

 

Do you know if there is a limit to the size of the Distribution List where Microsoft Teams no longer offers the drop down to expand the group?

Hello, well I think we can agree that there's a limit for expanding but I don't know when it stops. The only published limits are detailed here https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/limits-specifications-teams#teams-and-channels

Perhaps another member has stumbled across this or even done some testing. Let's see.
