Basically today if I want to create a meeting linked to a Teams' channel, I need to do it exclusively on Teams.  The option "Add channel" is only available inside Teams.

The problem with it is that Teams's meeting organizer doesn't have the same formatting tools, almost none of the best tools, and isn't as user friendly as Outlook.

 

Thanks for the support.

Would recommend to vote on them to push them up the agenda. If it gets picked up you will be notified. This is something I've wanted to see for some time and so have voted on them myself
