Hi,  had this query below as a support ticket, anyone done this or tried this out there?

 

We’re just in the process of rolling out Microsoft Teams for use within our account management team.

I’m looking to schedule a series of meetings in Teams to take place in a particular channel.

Do you know if there is an easy way to invite a group of people e.g. account managers to a meeting without having to invite them individually?


I know that I can schedule a meeting in a channel and everyone who’s in that Team will see the meeting in the channel, but it doesn’t go into individual diaries (which is what I need to happen).

If I try scheduling the meeting from Outlook, it doesn’t allow me to select which channel I want to run the meeting in and just creates a private meeting (same as if you’re scheduling a Skype
meeting)

I could invite everyone individually but that’s time consuming and I just want to know if there is a quicker way of doing it?


I’ve already been through the FAQs and videos in the help section for Team but couldn't see anything.

Each Team is also a group, so you can invite the group name. This will put the meeting in the Groups calendar, and will also be sent to each of the groups members (by default, they can opt out of receiving).

I'd just send out a Meeting invite, Send a link to the channel (Right click channel get link). Then say go the channel and join meeting. You get on a few minutes early, start an adhoc meeting in the channel and boom, there ya go.  If your trying to make it private then your meeting invite method is the way to do it using the Teams button. Otherwise you can do a Group chat ahead of time, then start a meeting in that group chat. 

Kevin,

Have you any success in any of the identified shortcomings?  I am encountering the same issues from your post of October 2017.
