Create and share a calendar with members of a specific channel. When a channel meeting is created, Teams automatically creates a new post in the channel’s activity feed. Users whose notifications are turned off will only see the event when they open the channel’s calendar. Once a channel event is posted, you can add it to your personal calendar. This feature provides visibility to upcoming events for all channel members, except guest users.
Use the existing AllowChannelMeetingScheduling Policy to manage the types of events that can be created in the team channel calendars. This is a per-user policy and applies before a meeting begins. This setting determines whether users can schedule a meeting in a Teams channel. This setting is enabled by default.
If this policy is disabled, users will not be able to create new channel meetings. However, existing channel meetings can be edited by the event organizer.
