Hi everyone!

 

If I schedule a meeting in a Channel, will this automatically send an outlook invite to Team members?

If I don't manually add anyone to the team, but just add the group as a whole, will this automatically send an outlook invitation to the Team?

 

Thank you!

This is a long standing debate that no one really can tell how this is supposed to work lol. It seems rather random and I believe is based on if people follow the group or not that's attached to the Team, which they used to by default but it keeps going back and forth. People have inconsistent behavior with it, so I don't even bother and always create manual entries for meetings or we will attach an ics file to a channel chat, @ mention everyone to add that to their calendar. Microsoft is working on group calendar support for Teams, so hoping they fix all that with that implementation. https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16933204-include-office-365-gr...
