Hi, so when I create a reoccurring meeting in a channel, the ENTIRE team is appended to the invitation along with my select attendees. How do I only select specific attendees and NOT the entire team? I do not want to send this invitation to 100+ people.

Hi @Awatatah ,
As mention it is probably to do with the underlying Office 365 group calendar. This thread seems to suggest that the issue has been going on for a long time with no current resolution.

@Chris Webb I know what you mean by creating a private meeting, but sometimes, a channel is created to cover a project and not all team members are part of the project, we want to utilize the channel meetings to share files and save the recording in one place. this causes everyone in the team to receive the invite and cause confusion. They are free to join and learn about the project, but If they are busy and working on something else, they think that they should be attending.

@Awatatah This is extremely frustrating for our organization as well. We want individual channels to be able to host their recurring meetings and keep the history of those meeting without the ENTIRE team getting the notification of those recurring meetings.
This has been a struggle. I hope there is a way to address this soon.

@Awatatah Same problem for me; Meeting has to be created from Teams to get it under the channel and teams adds the Teams underlying group in required attendees in the background and without showing it!! This is however visible in the event under Outlook -> Group Calendar, where you can remove the group from required attendees, which sends a canceled event e-mail to all (including still required named attendees)
- A suggestion for Microsoft would be to expose the group under required attendees in the event definition as soon as a channel is added, so that we can remove it if needed (or better, let us add it or not)!!
- In the meantime I am going to investigate where single user can retrieve the e-mail notifications for groups...
