Hi, we are on coronavirus lockdown and have quickly moved to Teams last week. We are using the channels to set up meetings as live events are not enabled. However the meetings are not showing on the students calendar. I tried copying the channel email and sending the meeting invite through that but it doesn't work on my account at all although this option seems to have worked for some teachers. The weird thing is I am the one who set everyone's teams. Any ideas ?

Hi @Senfer - are yo also inviting everyone when creating the meetings? Scheduling to a channel allows everyone to join but does not automatically add the events to calendars.

While you are scheduling the Microsoft Teams Meeting would recommend you to schedule the meeting from your Email Application and send it to the users. There has been some on-going issues which we are seeing with Microsoft Teams In-build Meeting Invite which is not getting replicated or send to all the users. Hence a request to schedule the meeting from your Email Application.
The meeting always has a option to be included in a specific channel while scheduling the meeting from Outlook. So you can also include the channel while scheduling the meeting from Outlook and the meeting would reflect in the channel too.

@Senfer Both messages above get the job done for you.
Want to add another way, that is via the Teams client, Calendar tab. From here you are able to schedule the meetings as well.
Here you can add the attendees you want to join this meeting (can be a list with the persons) or you can add them by name.
There is also an option to add the scheduled meeting to the channel, so you have both; a channel post with the meeting and the invites send to the attendees :)
Can you let us know if this helped you? :)
With regards and Stay Healthy,

Good advice but this did not help me. I have created a recurring meeting using the calendar in the Teams app on the MacOS platform. The meeting invitation did get sent via email as expected but the meeting does not appear in my own calendar nor. to the best I can tell, on that of the invitees.
I would think that this would be a basic and easily handled function... If I create a meeting in the calendar section of teams it should put it on the calendar, right? That doesn't happen here.
