Current set up is we have a Teams channel including the "Channel Calendar" tab, meaning any event put into that calendar will be sent to every member of the channel - nice and easy. The problem is now that we're starting to have more in person meetings and other kind of external meetings (e.g. Zoom calls) that everyone in the channel needs to be invited to. By default creating an event that calendar sends out an associated link for a Teams call which adds some confusion when we're not actually intending to have a Teams call for that meeting.

 

Is there a way of not sending out Teams call info for meetings created within the Teams app? And in particular for a specific channel? I suppose a workaround would be to create the meeting in the group calendar on Outlook and then inviting the group? But then you can't be channel specific? Any help would be appreciated!!

You can generate an email address for the channel and use Outlook to send the invite that way? Though sending it to the entire team will work better.
