When I create a new channel meeting and invite specific members of the channel, the invite is created and the attendees receive the meeting notification, however, external guests who are members of the Team but are not part of the attendee list are also being invited.

 

Is anybody else having this problem?

Hi, when you have a meeting in a channel, everyone in the team will be able to see it and join it in that channel. That’s by default.

@ChristianBergstrom I understand that everybody can see the channel meeting and can join is they choose to.  My problem is that external (Guest) members of the Team that are NOT in the Required Attendee (below) list are also being invited.  Normal members (non-guests) that are not in the required attendee list are not seeing the same behavior.

Ok, I understand. My best guess here is the fact that guests doesn’t have the ability to create meetings or access schedules and therefore are being notified about the channel meeting.

You can always ask the Microsoft support for an official answer by creating a support ticket (or someone with access can do it for you if you’re not an admin).

 

btw, this is a great article on the topic https://office365itpros.com/2020/03/31/invitations-teams-meetings/amp/
