Meeting with Teams

New Contributor

Good Afternoon,


I need a little help with creating a new meeting with my staff in Teams. I created a Teams name then added 3 channels under my Team. So I will be creating a meeting with Channel 1, Channel 2 and Channel 3 at different times.


Team Name, General, Channel 1, Channel 2, Channel 3


When trying to create a new meeting using the channels, it only gives me an option to add the Team Name, then General. It doesn't show my channels. The channels are showing private. If that's the problem, how can I change it from private to not private. Please advise.

Just received an email stating that I can not host a meeting in the private channels,
Thank you for getting back to me so soon!

@marierice Hi, no problem. Was on the phone though so the answer was very brief. You can use the "Meet now" function from within a private channel, if that's an option. It will look like this when you click to join the meeting.
