We work with partners remotely who are just as much a part of our team as those who work for us.  These partners are invited to our teams as guests and we would like them to be enabled to schedule meetings for the team.  When we try to enable the switch for this it won't allow it so it must be an administratively prevented option.

Guests can't schedule meetings in your tenant, they can start a meet now in a channel. I think this is because guests don;t get access to the Teams calendar in exchange, as that where scheduled meetings are created. I've not heard any suggestion that this will change.

 

I see you've added this to uservoice, I've added my vote, anyone else find it here :-

The guests really need to have Teams in their own tenant, if they do, they can schedule meetings via their Outlook Teams plugin with anyone. They just wont' be able to schedule it "inside" the channel.
I could possibly see guests being able to do this for Team channel meetings, but I doubt they will open it up to schedule personal meetings, that wouldn't make sense from a licensing perspective for Microsoft and would give anyone full meeting capabilities.

@Jacob Stimpson So, I stumbled across this and you might be able to try it to see if it even works, but by default for the "Guest" license type in your Teams settings in the admin center. The defaults for what your trying to do are actually turned off. You may want to go turn those things on and give it a whirl and see if they will actually work with guest users.

Actually nevermind, you can't change those settings duh. Don't see this happening other than "maybe" scheduling a channel meeting could be feasible for guests.
